Franconia residents like to celebrate, a lot.
To this end, there are traditional beer and “Kirchweih” festivals, such as the Erlangen Bergkirchweih, the Kulmbach Beer Week, and the Michaelis Kirchweih in Fürth. Furthermore, you can enjoy yourself at amazing music events, such as the Würzburg Mozartfest, the International Pipe Organ Week in Nuremberg, the Schönbusch Serenades in Aschaffenburg, or the Musikfest Eichstätt.
2020 is a big year for Würzburg with a 300-year anniversary for the Residenz Castle and the famous scientist Prof. Dr. Röntgen. The Franconian Lake Region marks the 50th anniversary of its creation and many other cities and regions celebrate the year extensively.
