One week solely dedicated to music

Splendid music in the most beautiful surroundings: The Richard Strauss Festival takes place every summer in Garmisch-Partenkichen under the aegis of Brigitte Fassbaender.

The motto in 2016 is „of fools and wise men“ and one can expect first class musical events featuring international orchestras, ensembles and soloists. The line-up includes Edita Gruberova, one of the most famous singers of our day, and the Aalto Theatre Essen in full force with a concert performance of „Elektra“.

Music lovers from all over the world enjoy the very special festival atmosphere and the outstanding aural experiences in, amongst other venues, the Olympia Skating Rink, the World’s only such venue where classical music can be enjoyed.

In 2016 the Festival takes place from the 11th to the 17th of June.

Not forgetting that outside the festival week, one can still walk in the footsteps of the great composer and conductor. All year round the Richard Strauss Institute invites you to explore the life and work of the great man.
