A feast for the eyes and ears: 60 years of concerts in the grand staircase hall

Pre-sales for all concerts open since16 February

Autor: Julia Bauer

One of the most unusual concert halls in Germany, the grand staircase hall in the Schloss Augustusburg palace, is celebrating its 60th anniversary as a concert venue. From 12 May to 2 September 2018, 29 “Brühler Schlosskonzerte” palace concerts will be performed to mark their birthday season. The highlight of the season is the Haydn Festival, which in 2018 will be held from 24 August to 2 September for the 10th time. Today, the grand staircase hall, which was designed by Balthasar Neumann, provides an authentic backdrop from the Haydn era as the concert venue. With its pillars, stucco elements, artistically decorated railings, wall paintings and a central ceiling fresco, it is a witness to the magnificence of the rococo period. The pre-sale of tickets for all concerts begins on 16 February 2018.

The Schloss Augustusburg palace in Brühl, the former summer residence of the Cologne princes and archbishops, with its “Falkenlust” hunting lodge and gardens, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984. The palaces in Brühl are considered to be the first outstanding rococo buildings in Germany, and were the model for a large number of homes for the aristocracy in Germany.
