No Trip to Austin is Complete without a Visit to the Cathedral of Junk

The motto of Austin is "Keep Austin Weird" and the Cathedral of Junk is one piece of art that holds true to its city!

The Cathedral of Junk is a hidden gem within the Austin City Limits, actually located in the artist's backyard. Construction was started back in 1988 by Vince Hannemann and he still continues to add to it to this day! Climb to the top of the tower to rock out on the drum set or maybe even catch a concert or perform your own on the stage!

It has switched to a $10 donation per group visiting and is by "appointment only" so be sure to contact prior to your visit as it is in a residential neighborhood. 

Contact (512) 299-7413 to schedule your visit!
