The locomotive hall in the Natur Park Südgelände is, along with the water tower and the bridge master's office, part of the listed overall complex and one of the largest and most important witnesses to the former use of the area as a railway site. Originally, there were three such halls before the Second World War, which served to maintain and repair the locomotives. Remains of the destroyed halls can still be found in the Moosgarten area.
The 4,500-square-metre industrial monument, which is almost 100 years old, will be restored in the coming years, put to extended use and thus secured for the long term. In the spirit of sustainable and climate-adapted urban development, the Lokhalle will receive over 4,600 square metres of green roof and exemplary rainwater management as part of the renovation. A new two-storey extension in ecological timber construction will add studio and workshop space for artists to the listed building. From 2025, visitors to the Nature Park will be able to use the Lokhalle in the southern area as an attractive event venue with a new restaurant.
