Unexpected musical experiences and personal encounters are trademarks of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The festival programme includes a broad range of series and »festivals within the festival«, where visitors can discover and focus on particular elements through a wide range of supplementary activities such as guided tours, listening experiments, artist talks and discussions over several days.
Promising young artists from all over the world present themselves in the series »Junge Elite« and »Bothmer-Musik«. The »Landpartie« invites you to a musical excursion to the countryside. And the »Grenzgänge« format takes you into the young jazz scene. Discover more about our various Festspiel elements here.
Our open-air events offer diversity and all-round entertainment for all in some of most impressive estates in the region, including the Schlossparks in Schwiessel and Fleesensee, the Schlosshof in Bleckede, Schloss Bothmer in Klütz and the open-air stage in Schwerin. Other highlights of the open-air season include the children’s and family fest in Haselwinkel and Kleines Fest im großen Park in Ludwigslust.
