The Niederdeutsche Bühne (Lower German stage) and its studio venue at Augustastraße have been a firm part of Flensburg's cultural life for several decades already. It was opened as an independent venue in town in 1974. The programme puts emphasis on readings, song writers and cabaret or entertaining plays in the local accent. But have no fear, even if you cannot understand the lower German dialect - the traditional regional accent - you will still be able to follow the plot. The theater is maintained by lots of voluntary work and numerous ambitious amateur actors. Once a month, Dat tweete Fröhstück (the second breakfast) takes place at the studio restaurant. It is a nice opportunity to enjoy a good breakfast and a glass of beer or wine while chatting with the directors or some actors.
