Monastery festival


Traditionally, Anhalt University’s Monastery Festival takes place at the Bernburg Monastery. The festival, which is organized by Anhalt University staff and students, offers many types of music, plays, dancing, and entertainment for young and old. Sponsors and clubs help out to make sure the festival is a big success.

Starting at 16:00, bands and stage performers provide a diverse program at different locations in the monastery. Here you can find party music by TromPeti, the band “Noch ist Zeit”, or Anhalt University’s international student music group “Die Kühe”. Later, there is rock music by Länett and Irish folk music by F.misd. At the same time, the band InZane plays metal music. Many delicious foods are available at the booths. Booths for children offer craft projects, a bouncy castle, or face painting.

All friends of the Monastery Festival are warmly invited to join in. A special schedule for public transportation in Bernburg applies for the day so that those coming to the party can leave their cars at home.
