A rich cultural life ...

Nordischer Klang

You won’t be bored! Cultural life in Greifswald stays vibrant all year round ...

Theater Vorpommern [de] has musical theatre, ballet, drama and concerts in store. The Pomeranian State Museum is ready to welcome all the art lovers. Every spring, aficionados of Scandinavian music, literature and culture are in for a real treat: the festival Nordischer Klang is one of the largest festivals for Northern European culture outside Scandinavia. Shortly afterwards, the Greifswalder Bachwoche [de] opens its doors for the North-German festival of sacred music in June. July too has plenty to offer with the Eldenaer Jazz Evenings that has brought jazz lovers from all over Germany together at Eldena Abbey since 1981. The annual Fischerfest Gaffelrigg, one of the largest maritime folk festivals, takes place in the picturesque fishermen’s village Wieck on the third weekend of July. It gets truly Romantic when the town celebrates the historical town festival “One Day with Caspar David Friedrich” on the last weekend in August. In November, the polenmARkT festival offers insights into Polish culture. In December, a series of advent concerts awaits you, including the Christmas Oratorio by Johann Sebastian Bach in Greifswald’s St. Nikolai cathedral [de].

Some of these festivals, like the Nordischer Klang, the Bachwoche and the polenmARkT, are largely organised and run by members of our university. You are warmly invited to get involved!
