Heidelberg Castle Festival
16 June - 04 August 2013
Every summer, the Castle Festival is eagerly awaited by Heidelberg's residents and guests. The unique Renaissance buildings of the castle, its dreamy nooks and crannies, as well as the extensive gardens and parks, provide an architecturally and atmospherically fascinating locale for the artistic work of the theatre. It is, indeed, a theatre with tradition: the Shakespeare Globe Theatre group stayed here as a guest when in 1613 the Globe Theatre in London was destroyed by fire.
Courtyards and open spaces become stages, walls and corners become the backdrops, making every Castle Festival performance an unforgettable experience.
