“Unique and exemplary” was the impression the Second German Television Station (ZDF) had of the first HARMONIE Festival in 1981. From May 25 to 28, 2017, choirs and folklore groups with thousands of participants from throughout the world will be coming together again in Lindenholzhausen, the “smallest festival town in Germany”, where the seventh HARMONIE Festival is to take place.
Lindenholzhausen belongs to the city of Limburg/Lahn, which is considered one of the most attractive places in Germany with its picturesque old town and cathedral, which is over 750 years old.
The HARMONIE FESTIVAL, with its international choir and folklore events and competitions, is considered as one of the most outstanding music festivals in the world. In 2011, more than 180 choirs and folklore groups representing 38 countries came to the fifth HARMONIE FESTIVAL. Patron was the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dr. Angela Merkel.
Radio and television from 11 countries and more than 80 newspapers and journals unanimously reported on the good organization and the high standard of competitions, folklore events, concerts and supporting events.
The second German Television Station (ZDF) reported in 2005: An unforgettable experience in the smallest festival city in Germany, an unbelievably large celebration with song and dance in competitions and concerts in which one sees the coming together of folks of different nationalities in an atmosphere of unity. This statement accurately describes the demand of this festival which exceeds the purely competitive atmosphere.
You are sincerely invited to take part in the HARMONIE FESTIVAL 2017 and we are looking forward to seeing you in Germany.
