What’s the “European Youth Week”?

European Youth Week is a unique youth and folklore festival. Every summer, around 200 young people from at least four different European countries meet at Burg Ludwigstein to live together for one week and to work, sing and dance together. The young people show wonderful folklore from their home countries during their performances. At workshops and various activities, the young people get closer. During the week, a big community is born – a European family.
It is the aim of Eurowoche, founded by Hella Heynmöller in 1953, to bring together young people from Europe and the world so that they can get to know and understand each other and their culture. This is intended to contribute to the understanding of peoples and peace in the world. The Youth Exchange is organized by the non-profit “Working Group European Youth Weeks Burg Ludwigstein e.V.”.
