By the way - you should already keep your eyes open: Starting Tuesday, June 14, surfers will be strolling around campus. Anyone who approaches them and tells them the code word "Summer Beach Party" will receive a voucher for a free drink at the party.
Palm trees, light effects and 80 tons of sand will transform the heart of the university into a beach. All those who come by can send balls flying through the air or test their balance on a surf simulator. There will also be an oversized Jenga game. DJ René Reuter and the Combo Combo band will provide summer sounds for spontaneous dancing.
For those who need some refreshments: several food trucks will be serving vegetarian kebabs, empanadas, burgers, fries, ‘currywurst’ and Asian dishes. Ice cream, smoothies and other drinks will also be available.
Barrier-free summer festival
80 tons of sand - that sounds like a lot! But there are actually wide paths between the individual sand islands. There is also a ramp for the large campus lawn - so people with limited mobility can participate in the celebrations wherever they are.
"We are looking forward to a beautiful summer evening with you and we are happy to celebrate together again on a larger scale," says President Prof. Dr. Anja Steinbeck on behalf of the university management.
