Following the cancellation of the Kissinger Sommer 2020

we want to move forward and slowly start up regular business again this autumn via a few concerts. We will shortly publish our autumn programme which will begin on the weekend after the Bad Kissingen Piano Olympics.

Until then we want to help you pass the time and have asked patrons of our festival, members of our board of trustees and the Kissinger Sommer Sponsorship Foundation to release a short video in which they explain what makes our top-notch, one-of-a-kind and emotional music festival special.
