Forum for Communication and Exchange 

      for Women in and around Freiburg, Germany

Welcome to the Network of English-Speaking Women!

The Network was founded in 1993 with the goal of providing a forum for communication and exchange between English-speaking women in and around Freiburg, Germany. By putting women in contact with one another and encouraging the exchange of information and experience – both personal and professional – the Network offers fun and informative evenings in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. 

Our next Meeting: June 15th, 6:45 pm

Backstage at the Theatre! 

I wonder how many theatre-goers actually realize the incredible amount of hard work that is involved in putting on a memorable production. Can you even begin to imagine the number of props, items of stage décor, variety of costumes and wigs that all have to be stored between performances? You’d be amazed! The Freiburg theatre, or Stadttheater Freiburg, is home to three of the performing arts: opera, theatre and dance, as well as a choir and the Freiburg Philharmonic Orchestra. A place where the chance to stand on the stage just once means the whole world to singers and actors alike.

Theatre-veteran Wolfgang Schröder will take us behind the scenes, sharing the history of the theatre and stories of its successes and flops. He will guide us through the theatre’s workshops where the props, costumes and wigs are produced, and where we can marvel over valuable costumes from bygone eras. The presentation will be in German.
Join us on this memorable journey, so next time you have the pleasure of going to a show, you will know just how much work is involved behind the scenes to make it a success!

After the tour we will have dinner at the Theatercafé nearby.
If you would like to join us please register by June 12th with Sylvia  at or call 0761 -514 8252.   You can also use this contact form.
