Germany is well known for its spectacular music festivals, with a plethora of festivals across the nation throughout the year. Celebrating its classical music legacy as well as some of the best music from contemporary artists around the world, the spring and summer months offer the highest concentration of music festivals, often with open-air venues that allow spectators to enjoy the great weather and charming greenery. Most German festivals open their doors to both adults and children as well, with many also having interactive educational programs for attendees who want to join in the music and cultural experience.
Our Top 10 German Festivals of Summer 2014 list takes all of these factors into account, and with the festival season just around the corner Germany should definitely be up there on your list of great festival experiences.
