    The cinemas of Marburg are all in the hands of one family. Luckily these people have the ambition to provide a good and various programme in addition to the usual blockbusters. In the late 1990s the new Cineplex was built, one of those big mainstream cinema complexes, and some old cinemas were closed and later demolished. Everyone thought this was the end of quality cinema in Marburg. However, the family took over also the new cinema palace but kept up their old programme cinemas.

    The blockbuster and mainstream movies are shown in the modern Cineplex in Biegenstraße. For those who want something different, there are the three small cinemas in Steinweg (Kammer, Palette and Atelier) that show less known and alternative movies. Their schedule might be worth checking out.

    Being a university town with 15,000 students, Marburg can be expected to have quite a bit of nightlife. Big city freaks will complain out of habit about this provincial place, however this is not fair. Marburg is not a place of big glamour clubs. It is a place of cosy and individual little pubs, of which you find a wide variety all over town. Prices are generally suitable for student budgets. Some of these pubs have been successful in business for decades and have become an institution to generations of students. My photos show a few examples. Others see more changes, close after a short while and then reopen under a new tenant with a new appearance and style.

    Most pubs will open in the later morning or around lunchtime and stay open past midnight. Many of them have adjusted to student lifestyle and offer breakfast until 2 or 3 p.m. or even later. Cheap lunchtime offers are common, check the blackboards for the dish of the day.

    Look for a watering hole, a place to eat and drink and watch and meet people in the larger streets of the Oberstadt: Barfüßerstraße, Marktplatz, Reitgasse, Wettergasse, Neustadt, Steinweg. Also in Weidenhausen, which is an off the beaten path tip. In summer most of them will also have outdoor seating.

    Dress Code: Wearing some clothes is recommended ;-)
    Otherwise, no requirements. Wear what you like.
