The festival will be held in Tyumen for the 7th time, and for the 5th year in a row UTMN has won the German Embassy’s competition for the honour of hosting the festival, proving its role as a catalyst of Russian-German cultural and educational cooperation in the region. 

The festival motto is an accurate reflection of the support and promotion the German language is given in Tyumen region through partner programmes organized by the UTMN Resource Centre for German Language and Culture
