Music is in the air. There's always a sense of excitement where bel canto meets brass brands, rock meets classical and jazz meets reggae. And that just happens to be everywhere in Germany! A land that dances to the rhythm of festivals and concerts – from Wagner in Bayreuth to heavy metal in Wacken.
Sandstone & Music Festival in Saxon Switzerland
From early spring until right into December, Saxon Switzerland uses music to showcase itself as a region. As part of the Sandstone & Music Festival, this lovely corner of Saxony is combining its most famous natural feature – bizarre sandstone formations – with a series of incredibly diverse concerts. Parks and baroque gardens, palaces, castles, churches and even a stone quarry have all become concert halls in this scenery characterised by sandstone.
