The Weimar Arts Festival is taking place this year for the 25th time since its inauguration in 1990, when it was one of the first German-German cultural initiatives after the Fall of the Berlin Wall. At the same time, the Weimar Arts Festival is redefining itself again. We have taken the festive aspect of an arts festival to heart, as the perfect opportunity to bring together audiences and artists, the citizens of Weimar and visitors to our city, younger and older spectators, and encourage them to enter into a dialogue with one another. Finally, the city of Weimar itself is theme, venue and main actor of this Arts Festival.
