The International Danube Festival has been taking place every other year since 1998, putting the spotlight on a different topical theme from politics or culture each time. A wide spectrum of cultures and lifestyles join together for the festival in Ulm and Neu-Ulm to celebrate the international Danube partnership and to strengthen relations between the communities connected by the river Danube.
For ten days Ulm city centre and the banks of the Danube buzz with activity, as international artists and guests gather to celebrate the coming-together of all the countries and regions along the Danube from the Swabian Alb all the way to the Black Sea via Bavaria, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania. The diverse nature of the Danube region soon becomes apparent, and is further reinforced by the many events that make this festival so special. Whether through music and dance or literature and theatre, every Danube country puts its best foot forward. This celebration of diversity is extended to the food and drink on offer too. The festival is always firmly focused on 'unity in diversity', the guiding principle of cultural cooperation in Europe in general and the Danube region in particular.
