Alfred Toepfer Stiftung F.V.S. - Siggener Kultursommer

What We Do

Siggen Cultural Summer

The Siggener Kultursommer is an integral part of cultural life in the Ostholstein region. Every year, the small festival is dedicated to a particular theme and invites musicians who fit the program. Many of the young musicians from all over Europe have received scholarships or other awards from the foundation - so the Siggener Kultursommer is not only an enrichment of the local cultural offerings, but also part of our sponsorship work.
