40th Neuburg Summer Academy

Greetings from the mayor

The renaissance town of Neuburg an der Donau has enjoyed a particularly active cultural life for many years, which is why it is also known as "the city of culture on the Danube". Our Neuburg Summer Academy is a major element and a national showcase. This year, the internationally recognised learning programme for fine arts, music and theatre is taking place for the 40th time.

From 29th Juny to 11th August, we once again offer a multi-faceted forum for creativity of all kinds here in Neuburg. 30 different courses from the areas of fine arts, jazz, classical, early music and theatre prove its genuinely interdisciplinary nature. This attractive offer is rounded off by a children's academy which is always well-attended and a youth studio. Retaining elements that have proved their worth and introducing exciting innovations such as the chamber music marathon - that is the secret of the success of our two-week cultural and learning event.

With these words I wish all participants an enjoyable time, a multitude of ideas, enthusiasm for trying out new things and inspiring, intensive conversations about art - and naturally all organisers, instructors, participants and guests of this year's summer academy many happy days, interesting stimuli, intensive creativity and much success!

Dr. Bernhard Gmehling
