Theatre performances, art exhibitions, live music from all over the world, and the colourful “Market of Ideas” are all about Tollwood Summer Festival.
At the concert stage, you will meet music legends and newcomers from all over Germany and other countries of the world.
The handicrafts market and international gastronomy choices speak for themselves.
The festival’s motto is “Culture for all”, so 70% of all performances are free to entry.
A month-long celebration of music and theatre – this is what Tollwood is!
First held in 1988, Tollwood takes place twice a year and is known as the festival “for humanity and environment”.
It promotes waste reduction, organic living, and climate preservation.
