Oxonian Summer Party

This July the Munich Oxford Alumni Society held its annual Summer Party in the leafy garden of one of our committee members. The event took place on a wonderful summer afternoon. Everyone brought picnics, a BBQ was lit and people shared memories of their Oxford days whilst drinking copious amounts of Pimms. We were joined […]

Oxonian visit to the Gärtnerplatztheater

The event combined a private tour though the newly renovated Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz with our attendance at a commented rehearsal of “Atlantis” one week before its official premiere. Both the tour and the commented rehearsal gave us fascinating insights to the infrastructure and the processes behind the performances at Gärtnerplatztheater. We very much enjoyed the […]

The Boat Race 2019

Together with our friends of the Cambridge Society, we watched the 165th Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. As has become tradition, we gathered at the “Cafe an der Universität” (Cadu) close to the University of Munich, and the room was again fully packed with alumnis and current students of both Oxford and Cambridge. After some […]

Oxford Weißwurstfrühstück

As a regular tradition, the Oxford Society in Munich kicked off the new year 2019 in style with the traditional Weißwurstfrühstück, including bavarian sausages, pretzels, beer and plenty of vegetarian options. The rule that the Weißwurst has to be served before noon dates back to the days when the lack of cooling facilities meant that […]

As for a number of years now, the attendance of over 80 Oxonians exceeded all expectations by the organisers.  The main highlight of the evening was the presence of the new British […]

Annual Oxford Autumn Hike

No real autumn without our traditional Oxford Alpine Excursion any longer – as every year a group of motivated Oxonian mountaineers gathered to enjoy a fabulous day in the Garmisch Alps. With lots of chatter in the air the crowed hiked up to the Stepbergalm through the misty forest. Even though the beautiful views of […]

O’ Zapft is! OUS Munich at the Octoberfest

In late September, Munich’s Oxford University Society met in the magnificent Armbrustschützenzelt for its annual Octoberfest outing. Around 30 alumni, 10 freshers, and even a current faculty member gathered around four long tables to take part in Bavaria’s foremost cultural spectacle. Bavarian music, traditional dress, and beer abounded. The world famous folk fest lived up to its […]

An evening of Royal Song

The Oxford Alumni Society had the big pleasure to enjoy some British flair from Windsor Castle in Munich again. Shortly after being prominently featured by the BBC during the weeding of Prince Harry and Meghan in St. George‘s Chapel at Windsor Castle, the Queen’s Six came back to Theatinerkirche on their 10thanniversary tour through Europe. […]

Visit to the Exhibition „YOU ARE FAUST“

The tragedy Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is one of the masterpieces of German literature. While first published in 1808 it still fascinates the modern reader with both it’s intriguing story and it’s stimulating intellectuality. The exhibition „YOU ARE FAUST“ at Kunsthalle München reflects on both the piece itself as well as on its […]
