Heidelberg Castle Festival
Heidelberg Castle, which dominates the old quarter, is one of the most widely recognised landmarks in Germany.
During the castle theatre festival, its historical walls create an impressive backdrop for concerts, plays and operas. All the productions are put together specially for these surroundings. In recent years, the biggest successes have been plays such as The Name of the Rose, Carmina Burana and Ronja, the Robber's Daughter, with the castle playing a part of its own.
