Dear Sommerwerft Friends, dear Culture and Theatre Enthusiasts,
Sommerwerft has reached it's 10th year, with a two and a half week programme of unusually interesting theatre and culture by the Main river. We declare this international theatre festival a public space without restrictions, a cultural free space in Frankfurt without fences or entrance fees. We invite you to come by and experience, dive in, see, feel and enjoy . . ..
On the grounds of the Weseler Werft (next to the Flößer Bridge on the shore of the Main River in Frankfurt), the visiter can expect a cultural festival program from international artists. Our CultureRoom on the shore, complete with a Biergarten, is open daily (rain or shine),
THE meeting place for everyone who wants to escape the summer blues in the urban consume-tempel, for people who are looking for something special, something quite different indeed.
|Special to the Osthafen (Eastern Harbor), the location of the Sommerwerft, is a place of contrast and upheavel:|
old dockyard cranes bare homage to the city's industrial history and - beside the skyscrapers of the banking district, the coal yards and the Flösser Bridge - it offers an impressive backdrop for the attractive festival program.
