Würzburger Impro­theater­festival

About the Festival

The Würzburger Improtheaterfestival is one of the best-known events in the improv theater scene in Europe and an integral part of Würzburg's cultural landscape. What began as a daring experiment has become an established and internationally renowned event. Organized by volunteers, the event promotes the diversity of improvised theater and presents it to the audience at Würzburg in a varied show program.

The next festival will take place from October 24th to 27th 2024!

Programme & Tickets

The Würzburger Improtheaterfestival is a theater event that is an inherent part for the cultural life in our city. Every year we present between eight and twelve shows in different venues all around Würzburg. On the one hand, the programme consists of international ensembles showing their innovative improv formats to our audiences. On the other hand, we present our own productions, which are performed by guests of the festival.

The show programme will be published one to two month before the festival weekend. The advance sale starts in a little bit later.


Each year we offer improvisers from all over the world the opportunity to train with international teachers. Usually our program consists of 12- or 16-hour-workshops which each highlight a different facet of the art form. Through a simple level system we want to ensure that the groups are homogeneous and that both newcomers and professionals find an attractive offer.
