Curtain up, and let the show begin! Film and theatre in Germany

Once experienced, never forgotten: films of the world and stages of world renown. Come to Germany for fantastic festivals offering classical music and comedy, for magical nights of theatre in the major cities, for open-air cinemas and a tradition of volkstheater – theatre for the people – that dates back centuries.

You might not necessarily associate Recklinghausen – a former mining town in the Ruhr region – with the theatre. But you'd be surprised. Recklinghausen really comes into its own as an international city of culture during the festival season from 1 May to mid-June. The Ruhr Theatre Festival is one of the biggest and most highly acclaimed events of its kind in Europe.
