Oldenburg's programme features something for everyone – provocative drawings, a grand ducal painting collection, the Culture Summer, Christmas market, grand operas and magical puppet theatres – the choice is phenomenal! The range of events on offer is extensive and varied and makes the city a veritable magnet for culture enthusiasts.

What makes Oldenburg different is the wide cultural spectrum, ranging from the lively independent cultural scene to the tradition-steeped cultural institutions and contemporary culture. The theatre landscape with its numerous and varied venues is very lively. The museum landscape has a unique variety with the Horst Janssen Museum and the Edith Russ House alongside the Municipal Museum and two State Museums (Art and Cultural History, Man & Nature). The city combines a splendid, grand ducal tradition and classicist architecture with a contemporary, urban spirit. No-one rests on their laurels, and forward-looking cultural policies which incorporate all protagonists ensure that Oldenburg's reputation as a cultural hub continues to grow.

See for yourself! A number of cultural institutions including monuments and sculptures, galleries and churches, landmarks and parks are marked on our city map » One click to culture.
