Framework programme

As an accompaniment to the Göttingen International Handel Festival, we had 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 was in the air and found its way into almost every nook and cranny.

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

Exhibitions and collections at Göttingen University also offered 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 past events here and as Festival Calendar to download on »Festival magazine.
