23rd International Firework Competition

There will be an explosive atmosphere in Hannover from 25 May to 21 September 2013 as the city hosts its 23rd International Firework Competition.

On five different dates, teams of pyrotechnicians from all over the world will be putting on impressive shows to demonstrate their skills. No expense will be spared on the colourful rockets and amazing displays that will light up the sky in spectacular fashion. To accompany the competition, events will be taking place in the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen. In the impressive setting of the gardens, visitors can enjoy a programme of theatrical performances, music and other firework-themed entertainment. Also worth a visit is Herrenhausen Palace, which is located in the gardens and has recently reopened after extensive restoration.
