Every year is Mozart year – at least in Würzburg. Sometimes it’s also Beethoven year. »Freedom for renewal« was for Ludwig van Beethoven the purpose of all artistic creativity. Like Mozart, he always looked to the future, transcended boundaries. In this sense, we intertwine these two concepts, and think about »Resistance, Resurgence, Renewal«.
Welcome to the Mozartfest!
The Würzburg Residenz, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, churches, monasteries, wineries, palace gardens or industrial monuments are the stages for a multi-faceted cornucopia of events in which the focus is on shared appreciation and exploring aural sublimities.
Concerts & Tickets
Classical concerts featuring symphonic, vocal or chamber music are spotlighted in around 70 events a year. Diversity is not a mere buzzword here, but an experientially embraced program.
