Bonner Schumannfest: Festival for young artists

Since 1998 the Bonner Schumannfest (formerly “Endenicher Herbst”) is dedicated to the memory of Robert and Clara Schumann. With a varied program of classical music, jazz, rock, cabaret, film and dance, the festival takes a look beyond Bonn’s borders. The main objective of the festival, which is directed by Markus Schuck, is the promotion of artistic talent.

Cooperations with the Republic of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Denmark, Slovakia, France, Italy and Austria have given the Schumannfest an international character for several years.

The festival takes place in the district of Bonn, around the Schumannhaus, a district that has the greatest density of cultural facilities in the federal city of Bonn and is also unique in this form nationwide.

The Schumannfest Bonn is a member of the Schumann Network (sponsored by the Commissioner of the Federal Government for Culture and Media and the Federal State of Bonn).
