Established in 1996 as the festival of the European spa region, the annual Electoral-Saxon Summer is traditionally opened on the Royal Grounds of Bad Elster on May 1. The festival lasts until October, hosting around 300 excellent cultural events of various genres in Bad Elster, Bad Brambach and around 40 carefully selected locations in Bavaria, Bohemia, Saxony and Thuringia – right here in the heart of Europe.

The culture and festival town of Bad Elster is the shining “summer residence” of the successful cultural festival. When you come here to see and hear renowned artists and ensembles, attend concerts in the historical park and treat yourself at the Kulinarium, you feel truly royal.
