The Torhaus Wehlen is a former administration building built in 1742 in the rural Baroque style, later an inn and holiday home . Since 2005, the building has been renovated by the artist Dirk Großer and used as an art venue. Events, art exhibitions, conferences and workshops take place. The building is also used as an artists residence and for rental to vacationers and tourists. The annual international OutsideIn art laboratory takes place here.
