Schleswig-Holstein Musikfestival

2021

Enjoy classical music at extraordinary locations at one of the largest festivals in the world in terms of area at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival.

With the Rolls Royce to the festival? Or with the festival to the Rolls Royce? The latter! The Schleswig-Holstein Musikfestival will be performing in the former iron foundry Carlshütte in Büdelsdorf, 120 kilometres north of Hamburg. The industrial halls are the home of NordArt - a major exhibition of contemporary art. One of the most spectacular exhibits is a Rolls by the artist Paweł Wocial, which is decorated with cuddly toys. With extraordinary venues such as these and about 200 classical concerts, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival is today one of the largest of its kind in the world.

The programme

Until 2014, each year was dedicated to a specific country. Since 2015, however, the festival has dedicated its programme to one composer retrospective each year. The last years the participating musicians focused on works of artists such as Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Peter Tschaikowsky, Joseph Haydn and Johann Sebastian Bach. The programme highlights every year include the music festivals in the countryside, which invite you to dwell with a combination of picnic and classical music. In addition, both the great names of classical music and promising newcomers are offered a stage to perform their works to the very best of their ability.
