The University of Music Würzburg is one of the oldest professional institutions of music in Germany having it’s roots in the 1779 founded collegium musicum academicum. Nowadays the University has its place of domicile in three recently renovated buildings placed in the historic town of Würzburg just next to the „Residenz“ an UNESCO world heritage building in the style of Versailles castle build by Balthasar Neumann in 1719. There're recently studying about 650 students at University of Music Würzburg. Next to the studies of all common instruments, the school also offers an education for a teaching degree for secondary schools and musical theory. Besides there's a Precollege connected to the University with another highly talented and motivated young students at the age of 11 and older. 

The school's buildings include a grand concert hall with excellent acoustics with around 800 seats, a theatre especially build fort the need oft the opera department and two chamber music halls. In the very well appointed library you can also listen to the schools own mediathek, for exemple to the last concert of the saxophone class, recorded by the university’s professional sound engineer with whom students also have the possibility to make their own recordings for any use.

Like on any European professional school of music, rooms for practicing are not abundant, but with putting a little effort in self-organization, you will always have enough practicing opportunities.

Between your lessons or between two sessions of practicing you might want to meet other students in one of the lounges, having a cup of coffee or just use the school's computers for surfing the www or maybe even better have a little walk through the wonderful baroque style park of the Residenz. For having lunch you might want to use the University’s cantina, just five minutes by bike away, selected as Germany’s best university cantina several times.

Compared to its amount of inhabitants of just 133.000 people the culture live of the city of Würzburg is lively and diverse. As a main part oft the city’s musical live, Würzburg Theater is offering a large programme of plays, operas, symphonic concerts and ballet performances. Only next to many little seasons, the highly acclaimed „Mozart Fest Würzburg“ invites top acts oft he classical music world every summer in June and July. Other professional seasons are for example „Bachtage Würzburg“ and „Musikalische Akademie“. But due to the University with far more than 20.000 students, the cultural live also offers a widely ranged free artistical scene.
