Festivals of summer 2019

Festivals of summer 2019

Karlsruhe’s summer of festivals is as colourful and diverse as the city itself. DAS FEST, one of the largest open-air festivals in Germany, is an event that is eagerly anticipated by more than just the locals. Nowadays, screens are huge; but most of them pale in comparison to the extraordinary 170 by 17-metre screen at the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE, where the entire palace façade is transformed into a gigantic multimedia spectacle! This year, the ‘City of Law and Justice’ has cause for celebration: it is the 70th anniversary of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany! All eyes will be on Karlsruhe when all of Germany celebrates the VerfassungsFEST.
