798 Art Zone （798艺术区）is an avant-garde and trendy place that combines artistic and commercial activities. It has been morphed from several former over-50-year-old military factories with unique architectural style. One of the largest factories is known as Factory 798, hence the name for the art district.
The whole art space is open all year round and free to the public. It comprises many design rooms, art galleries, exhibition space, artists’ studios, fashion shops, restaurants, bars and many other elements of culture and art.
798 Art District has become a new symbol of Beijing, attracting a consistent flow of visitors. If you are interested in creative art forms while you are on your Beijing tour, a 2-hour leisure trip to 798 Art Zone is a rewarding choice.
