HIMS Academy stands for ‘Encounter – Experience – Learning’ in the fields of classical music, art and culture. A special focus is on intercultural exchange. Current and future projects benefit from the enthusiasm and many years of experience of the company’s founders in these fields. This is the basis of the HIMS Academy’s claim to organize events and projects with a high degree of professionalism, quality and exclusivity.

Schloss Hafenpreppach, the castle garden and park as well as the adjacent buildings offer ideal conditions for performance, exhibitions, creativity, education and tranquility to experience and practice music and art from different perspectives.

The location of the castle in the district of Hassfurt, the proximity to the regions of Coburg, Bamberg, Schweinfurt, Bayreuth and last but not least Würzburg forms a great basis for the integration of an attractive space into the concept.

The Perspective


In the future, the Academy’s educational program will include summer academies for students from foreign, internationally oriented educational institutions. In courses and events lasting from one to several weeks, participants will be given attractive opportunities to actively experience and learn about various forms of art and music. The programs are embedded in cultural offerings of the region of Upper and Lower Franconia as well as the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin.

After its renovation, the Orangery as part of the palace complex is available to musicians and ensembles as a venue for study residencies, sound and video recordings, and concerts.

Art exhibitions are planned for the palace’s garden and park, which are also undergoing a redesign.

In an ‘artist in residence concept’, interested people from near and far will have the opportunity to meet internationally renowned artists, to experience them at work and to learn a lot about art and its creation. Exhibitions will round off this offer.
