Of course, our advanced education program can't subsitute real cultural experiences, which are a highly important part of every exchange program. Therefore the International Summer University Kassel offers a choice of workshops which you can attend during your stay. Each course focuses on a different field of interest and will be held in English.

You may choose one of the following workshops, which is included in your fee:

German Folk Dance

Come and enjoy yourself in our folk dance! Germany has many different regions – each having preserved its own cultural identity. Traditional folk dance is obviously an important part of this heritage. So why do you not join the workshop and experience it yourself. A local folk dance group from Kassel will be invited to show you their best moves. 


Enjoy the beautiful landscape and nature on an evening hike up the Dörnberg and its mystical Helfensteine. This area is famous for its special vegetation, especially the wild orchids! On our tour we will walk along the trail Eco Path Archeology and focus on the interesting historical background of the area.
