Choir, Orchestra, Theater
Are you interested in the arts? If you would like to play music in your free time, you can join the choir or orchestra of the University. If you are interested in acting you can join the Studi(o)Bühne (acting in German) or the English Drama Group (acting in English).
The student communities “Evangelische Studentengemeinde” (ESG) and “Katholische Hochschulgemeinde” (KHG) offers all students – regardless of denomination – a versatile program of regularly scheduled activities, lectures and meetings!
Concerts and Music Festivals
Concerts and festivals play an important role in the cultural life of the city of Würzburg. Especially two annual open-air festivals should be mentioned: The largest Africa festival in Europe, where you can hear traditional and modern music, stroll through the bazaar, enjoy international food, and take in a particularly lovely atmosphere, and the festival “Umsonst & Draussen” with musicians of all styles, a fun bazaar, and an art tent (and it’s umsonst or free to get in!)
Classical music fans will especially enjoy the Mozartfest.
If you want to play music by your own, you may find friends at the Kammerorchester Grombühl.
The cityscape of Würzburg is characterized by architecturally and historically interesting buildings such as the Residenz, the fortress Marienberg, the Dom St. Kilian or the old Main bridge. Museums and galleries also present important artworks like masterpieces of Riemenschneider in the Mainfränkisches Museum, the original laboratory of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in the X-Memorial or the collection “Konkrete Kunst in Europa nach 1945” and other other interesting exhibits in the Kulturspeicher.
