A Turnerschaft is a kind of Studentenverbindung, a German student corporation, similar to fraternities in the US and Canada. The Turnerschaften are a sports corps, and students practice the Mensur (academic fencing).

Most Turnerschaften are members of either the Coburger Convent or the Marburger Convent.
