"Richly blessed" – this describes not only the soil and the "lush earth" in East Bavaria. No, it is also really not an exaggeration to use this term to describe the wealth of culture on offer in the region.

In summer numerous open-air theatres invite you to enjoy truly exceptional theatrical highlights. Every theatrical genre is represented alongside "earthy, regional art" and offers something for all tastes. A wide range of festivals, markets, the many lakes all around and culinary delights make summer in East Bavaria a true marathon undertaking.

But there is no way you can get bored in spring, autumn or winter either. Interesting and varied cultural offerings, museums with different topics and approaches, cinema, thriving traditional hostelries, Christmas markets and events that are steeped in tradition through the seasons provide a wealth of creative, interesting and exciting opportunities to experience and enjoy culture!
