Thinking about a day trip or looking for a good way to round off a pleasant ramble? How about a play at the Südwestfälische Freilichtbühne Freudenberg open-air theatre, drama at the Apollo theatre in Siegen, or a concert by the local state orchestra, the Philharmonie Südwestfalen? Our museums house works by Rubens, who was born in Siegen, along with contemporary art, folk and natural history collections.
The Apollo is a stage without its own ensemble, which means it is in the happy position of having the opportunity to engage well-known theatre ensembles from major German cities. In addition, the theatre can offer space to various institutions and groups for free cultural work.
The Museum of Contemporary Art in Siegen is dedicated to influential postions in contemporary art, from painting through photography and video art to space- and time-specific installations. The Museum of Contemporary Artis part of the City Tour
Schloss Berleburg has an impressive fairytale ambience: Wonderful concerts, unique guided tours and the thought-provoking WeihnachtsZeitreise (Christmas journey through time) make this place something really special.
