Himmelsburg Tour

The live experience

Imagine entering the Himmelsburg once in a lifetime and listening to the Weimar cantatas! The Himmelsburg Container made guest appearances at festivals in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands in 2022. Thousands of visitors visited the virtually "resurrected" castle chapel and took a seat on the three pews inside the Himmelsburg container. We look forward to new host cities and inform you here about dates and locations.
