The old town of Monheim has seen enormous change in recent years. An era marked by a lively pub scene was followed by a phase during which an increasing number of pubs, bars and restaurants were forced to close down. Today, the historic part of Monheim has once again become the town's beating heart. SEG was able to acquire various buildings, which helped attract new restaurants, cafés and cultural institutions as tenants. Today, the "Altstadt" is bustling with life again, inviting visitors to spend time there. Thanks to its proximity to Rheinbogen Landscape Park, it is an especially popular destination in summer. The latest projects include the renovation and remodeling of the houses on Turmstrasse 20 and 28. Both of these are very old, listed buildings which need to be renovated with the appropriate skill and expertise. A breath of fresh air has already swept through the ground floor of the Turmstrasse 28 building since the "Tante Tina" (Aunt Tina) deli moved in. Aunt Tina's customers can purchase local specialities or sit down an enjoy some of the delicacies on offer at the bistro. A wind of change is also blowing at Turmstrasse 20: The building will soon be home to a café/restaurant and an art workshop. The art workshop is a space for those who create art or have an interest in it, and is intended as a way for citizens to get involved. An expert jury decides every year which four professional artists will get to move into the workshop as Artists in Residence for three months each to set up and carry out participative art projects in Monheim.
