The annual Bauhaus Festival of light and colour is one of the highlights in town’s programme of events. On the first weekend in September, the curtain goes up on installations, creative and artistic experiments and performances all over the town. Music, dance and gastronomy – a creative interplay between the and famous artists, the town and visitors. A unique atmosphere is generated here. Before the start of the festival, the Anhalt Theatre kicks off with a grand open-air preview of the coming season.
