Wanna know what’s going to happen at the 17th Würzburger Improtheaterfestival? We are going big again! Combining the "traditional“ festival with last year's experimental version, we will be offering regular workshops lasting 12 hours and intensive ones lasting 16 hours…

Submit a show format!

Interested in bringing a show format to the 17th Würzburger Improtheaterfestival? Applications are open from March 31st until April 28th. More info and the application form can be found below.

We look forward to your submissions!


The registration process for the workshops will start on May 8th and ends on May 22nd, so you will have two weeks to fill out the form. Afterwards we will draw names from a lottery and give away the spots.

Making new experiences, meeting new people

The Würzburger Improtheaterfestival is aiming to create a workshop program that represents the variety of improvised theatre. By inviting experienced teachers who are covering a wide range of themes and stiles, we try to break new grounds and set new impulses to help develop the art form further.

During the festival all four workshops will take place at the same time. Every workshop will start on Thursday and will end on Sunday.

Come by

For everyone without a workshop spot

You didn't get a spot in this year's festival but want to come by anyway? No problem! Drop us a note and we'll find out, if there is still a bed available in the Youth Hostel that we can book for you. 
And, of course, we'd also love to have you at our shows and parties if you want to stay somewhere else.
Looking forward to seeing you!


Youth Hostel Würzburg

Our workshop teachers and the participants are staying at the Youth Hostel Würzburg. That means, if you booked your festival fee including accommodation, you'll sleep next to the Jugendkulturhaus Cairo and all the workshop rooms - and you'll be in the very centre of the festival.

The Youth Hostel is wheelchair accessible, has free wifi and linen. You only have to bring towels. The Youth Hostel is also the place, where we'll all have meals together.

Further accomodation possibilities

If you'd rather like to stay in a hotel instead of the Youth Hostel, you'll find some options below. Please note that you'll have a longer walking distance to get to the workshops, as the festival - except for the shows - will mainly take place around the Jugendkulturhaus Cairo and the Youth Hostel.

Hotel Alter Kranen (centrally located, about 7 min by foot to the Cairo)
B&B Hotel (ca. 10 min by foot to the main station, about 20 min by foot to the Cairo)
Babelfish Hostel (next to the main station, about 25 min by foot to the Cairo)
