Framework programme

As an accompaniment to the International Handel Festival, we can look forward to a colourful and wide-ranging programme of events in Göttingen and the surrounding region – a programme brimming with esprit and creativity. In May, Baroque music is in the air and finds its way into almost every nook and cranny.

Here you can read about a selection of the framework events which either take place in English, or in which language is not important for enjoying the occasion.

Exhibitions and collections at Göttingen University also offer plenty to discover during the Festival period. Further information is available at »Exhibitions and Collections open to visitors during the Festival.

See the complete schedule of events here and as Festival Calendar to download on »Festival magazine.
