About 798 Art Zone

North-east of central Beijing in the Dashanzi district sits 798 Art Zone. Comprising of several old military factories, the 798 Art Zone is dedicated to art displays, exhibitions, galleries, restaurants and bars. Combining contemporary art, architecture and culture with a unique, urban lifestyle, 798 Art Zone has evolved into a major Beijing attraction visited by millions each year.

Outdoor areas and galleries are lined with unusual sculptures which include everything from ancient Chinese symbols to military propaganda. Explore the pavement side galleries, interactive displays or pick up a memorable souvenir. The district offers fascinating photographic opportunities with wall murals, a variety of contemporary installations and cafes to enjoy. One street showcases gilded silver cars and skulls, the next, caged beasts or suggestive displays of nude figurines. One highlight is the rampant beast sculpture surrounding a giant of a man poised to attack. The warehouse and factory squares offer visitors unique insight into Chinese culture, past and present, through a variety of art displays. Inside the buildings, enjoy interactive and provocative 3D displays, guaranteed to get visitors thinking. A myriad of colours reflect on the walls as images project like a revolving kaleidoscope. Travellers should allow up to half a day to truly connect with 798 Art Zone. Following the visit, venture into one of the fabulous restaurants in this district. From vegetarian and Mediterranean restaurants to cosy cafes and noodle bars, the dining options will satisfy even the most demanding palates.

Reaching 798 Art Zone is relatively easy. There are subway lines and several bus services which transport visitors to Dashanzi Road Crossing South or the stop at Wangyefen. Travellers who are already in the area visiting the China Railway Museum or Wangjing Park can walk to the district within 30 minutes.

The area of 798 Art Zone was originally named after the factory built in the 1950s. It was the manufacturing location for the North China Wireless Joint Equipment Factory. When the corporation moved out of the area, the factories were leased out. Leading figures of the art world were instantly attracted by the Bauhaus architecture and began to transform each plant into thrilling installations and art galleries. By 2008 over 400 global organisations had settled into the zone and the district continues to attract visitors from all over the world.
