A Cordial Welcome!

Discover Early Music Anew! – With this slogan, the Music Festival Eichstätt captivates its visitors and transports them into the musical worlds of the Medieval and Renaissance Era, the Rococo and the early Romantic period. The city of Eichstätt offers a Baroque urban center with numerous historical buildings in and around the former Residence of the Prince-Bishops. Every year the most magnificent halls in Eichstätt become performance venues for exceptional guest musicians from all over Europe, all of them thrilling specialists of their craft.

Let yourself be enchanted with our concerts in 2019; have fun with music, and enjoy the unique atmosphere in our Baroque city!

We are pleased that the Bavarian State Minister for Science and Art Bernd Sibler has taken the patronage of the festival in 2019. Together, we are committed to bringing the European cultural heritage of past centuries – our very heritage – to life on the concert stage, unearthing the unknown and discovering the familiar anew.

We wish you much pleasure perusing these pages and are very hopeful that you will be inspired to visit Eichstätt. It would be a pleasure to greet you at one of our concerts!
