A wide range of culture, sports and leisure societies have devoted themselves to the spirit of civic engagement and cooperation. The oldest club, the First Privileged Shooting Club (Erste Privilegierte Schützenverein) has already been founded in 1792. The successful football club VfB 09 is probably the best known sports club in Pößneck and its surrounding. The Society for Local History Pößneck (Verein für Heimatgeschichte Pößneck e.V.) entices great numbers of people to the traditional museum night in November or invites old and young to join the traditional Easter Walk. The Goethe Society Pößneck (Goethegesellschaft Pößneck) arranges interesting and informative lectures, while the society "Pößneck more attractive" (Pößneck attraktiver) wants to win the citizens to embellish the city. Among many other festivals they organize the 3rd Sculpture-Spring 2009, which attracts art enthusiasts from the city as well as from the surrounding area. Young people from the Action Alliance Courage (Aktionsbündnis Courage) get involved in the informing and resistance against undemocratic tendencies. Furthermore, the sports club SV Fortuna regularly brings the Thuringian State Championship in beach volleyball to Pößneck. The association Leisure Centre (Freizeitzentrum e. V.) is a good address for dance and theatre enthused children and adolescents. In short - lots of things are going on here. You will certainly find the right thing!
