Cultural Activities

Studying in Halle does not only offer very good professional training. It is also an experience with rich culture in a vibrant university town. ESN Halle (Saale) is, in cooperation with the International Office, responsible for a cultural program for international students at the University of Halle, featuring international  "Stammtische" (regulars' tables), excursions, cultural evenings, concerts and much more.

Cultural Program

There are always a lot of things to do in Halle. Bar Nights, excursions, day trips, concerts and much more – the International Office and the Erasmus Student Network Halle (Saale) are there for you to help you familiarise yourselves with the city of Halle, its surroundings, and German culture.

Erasmus Student Network Halle (Saale)

ESN Halle (formerly known as "ERASMUS Life Halle") is a volunteer student organisation whose members are involved with services for exchange students. The aim of the initiative is to complement existing care services and to promote communication regarding the events and recreational programs. In particular ERASMUS students get the opportunity to get to know more German students, to participate in the activities of the Buddy-Program together with their tutors and to present various cultural events in their own culture and better understand the German way of life.

No matter whether you are a student, a postgrad, an apprentice, or simply an open-minded young person: You are very welcome to join us, the Catholic University Chaplaincy in Halle (Katholische Studentengemeinde, short KSG). The Chaplaincy is open to everyone who is interested to talk about God and the world or simply wants to take a look beyond their own nose.

We invite young people from all over the world to be a part of our community and share food, faith, and culture.

Every Wednesday evening we celebrate Mass, have dinner, and enjoy community. Often, we have interesting people as guests for talks on and discussions about a variety of topics. At the Chaplaincy, you can rediscover, live, and develop your faith together with other young Christians. It is a place to meet people, to find friends, and to celebrate at. It is a place that can become home away from home. Welcome! more
