Neuschwanstein Concerts 2024 Open-Air

New: Classical music in the castle courtyard

Since its founding in 1970, the Neuschwanstein concerts have attracted enthusiastic visitors to the castle’s Singers’ Hall. The Konzertgesellschaft Neuschwanstein e.V. is ending the painful nine-year hiatus and will provide new impetus with a distinctive profile in an open-air format in summer 2024. The castle courtyard of this world-famous landmark, which has never been performed in this way before, offers unique acoustics and atmosphere in a breathtaking setting on balmy summer evenings. International artists enchant with top-quality music.

Royal inspiration & modern interpretation

For the first time, locals and guests can experience how Bavaria’s landmark is transformed into a cosmopolitan sound space. King Ludwig II and the Romantic era serve as the common thread that is ingeniously woven into the overall programme. A concept that would have pleased Ludwig II, a programme that can only be found at Neuschwanstein. Especially as the 2024 classical series will be crowned by the fact that it will come to an end on his 179th birthday.

“Oh, it is necessary to create such paradises for yourself,
such poetic refuges,
where for some time, the terrible times in which we live,
can forget.”

Ludwig II.

Tradition and innovation

Classical enjoyment in a class of its own

From 1970 to 2015, the Neuschwanstein Concerts delighted music lovers from near and far once a year with musical masterpieces of classical music. They were organised by the district of Ostallgäu and the municipality of Schwangau. The classical concert series was a musical highlight in Bavaria’s cultural calendar for many years and thrilled audiences in the magnificent Singers’ Hall, which King Ludwig II once created for his favourite composer Richard Wagner.

Königliche Inspiration & moderne Interpretation

Einheimische und Gäste können erstmals erleben, wie sich Bayerns Wahrzeichen in einen kosmopolitischen Klangraum verwandelt. Ergänzt wird dieses Allgäuer Alleinstellungsmerkmal durch ein attraktives Rahmenprogramm.

Bayern, König Ludwig II. und die Epoche der Romantik dienen dabei als jener rote Faden, der dramaturgisch genial in das Gesamtprogramm eingewoben wird. Ein Konzept, das Ludwig II. gefallen hätte. Zumal die Klassikreihe 2024 dadurch gekrönt wird, dass an seinem 179. Geburtstag, dem 25. August 2024, die Schlosskonzerte nicht nur ihren fulminanten Ausklang finden, sondern zudem ganz im Zeichen eines majestätischen Mythos‘ stehen.
