CG Elementum also 2023 supporter of the DomStufen Festival

This year, Theater Erfurt will once again transform the Thuringian state capital into a cultural hotspot: from July 7 to 30, 2023, the traditional venue will host the DomStufen Festival in front of Erfurt Cathedral in the old town, which has been held annually since 1994.

The cultural highlight with international appeal, which attracts tens of thousands of spectators each year, is supported by CG Elementum AG for the umpteenth time. The nationwide operating real estate project developer, which is part of the Gröner Group AG, sees it as its social responsibility to engage in cultural events that bring people from all over the world together.

For international audiences, the opera “Faust’s Damnation” by French composer Hector Berlioz will be performed this year against the historic backdrop between the cathedral and the Severi Church. For young audiences, the program includes “Jim Knopf and Lukas the Locomotive Driver” by Tobias Rokahr. The children’s opera with lyrics by Katharina Tarján was adapted for the stage based on the classic children’s book by Michael Ende.

“Supporting the DomStufen Festival is a special affair of the heart for us. Hardly any other cultural event in the region manages to create space for so many people of different provenance, to connect them with each other and to create a sense of community. We also implement these aspects with our neighborhood developments, which take into account the diverse needs of a wide range of people and at the same time incorporate important framework factors such as nature and the environment,” comments Ulf Graichen (CEO/CDO), member of the Management Board of CG Elementum, on the commitment.

CG Elementum sees itself as having close ties with the city of Erfurt and the entire region. The company realizes real estate projects there with which it contributes to the preservation of listed buildings and the development of the city. CG Elementum is currently revitalizing the former TA high-rise – the future Erfurt Chronicle – on the edge of the old town, as well as the former Braugold site. In the Braugold Areal, a special focus is being placed on sustainability and regenerative energies through our ecobuilding product: The forward-looking energy concept includes a photovoltaic system, decentralized heat pumps, a combined heat and power plant, and charging infrastructure for e-mobility. In addition, an ice storage system with a storage volume of over 1,000 m³ is used, which can supply the local energy network with heating and cooling all year round on the basis of a wide range of environmental energies. This is expected to save up to 324 tons of CO2 per year compared to conventional plant technology.
