Extraordinary music calls for an extraordinary venue. To mark the tenth anniversary of Wartburg Castle Festival, two extra-special concerts are set to take place this October. On 3 October 2013 Otto Sauter & Ten of the Best will be joined by musical friends for their Wagner Project, which takes the music of Richard Wagner on a fascinating journey around the world, incorporating international musical cultures to spectacular effect. And if that weren't enough, on 5 October 2013 the Night of the Trumpets will once again be bringing together distinguished trumpeters from all over the world.
Wartburg Castle, a testament to the great eras of German history, was made a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 1999.
