Siegener Sommer: Culture in the open air

In summer 2021, many creative artists of Siegen breathed easily once again as the Siegener Sommer event brought music, theatre, art and cinema back to the city calendar. This year, another colourful and varied programme awaits – and hopefully the weather will play along as Siegener Sommer 2022 invites the public back to the castle grounds and courtyard of the Oberes Schloss.

The cultural comeback is scheduled for July, August and September of 2022. Alongside popular segments like the ‘Sunday afternoons at 4pm in the castle grounds’ series, there will be more children’s theatre for the summer holidays, this time featuring ‘Wenn der Pinguin jongliert’ (one-man comedy show), ‘Die feine Ratte Arthur’ (puppet show) and ‘Rudi der Baby-Elefant’ (clown show). This year’s ‘Open-air Classics’ welcomes classical musicians like Quattro Percussioni and Blech5@.

In the courtyard of the Oberes Schloss, meanwhile, ‘Stage Art – Bühne frei!’ presents the Siegen Poetry Slam, the Springmaus improvisation ensemble, the Kabaret Kalashnikov and more. Also in the Oberes Schloss courtyard, Bozen Brass, Ringsmasters, Gema 4 and Judith Adarkwah & Mario Mammone will be showcasing their talents at the ‘World Music Nights’.
