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 Winter 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:

Gingerbread Houses

Building ginger bread houses is a typical German tradition in winter. Come show your art and creativity skills as you compete with other teams for the best Gingerbread house!
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. 

Are you interested? Then we will be happy to welcome you at the workshop.
