»Reformation & Mendelssohn«
Anniversary of 500 years of Reformation and the 170th anniversary of the death of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy
21 October - 5 November 2017
On the occasion of the Luther year of 500 years of the Reformation, the cultural and festival town Bad Elster - together with the neighboring city Adorf/Vogtland - commemorates these two important anniversaries of Central Germany with cultural commemorations in the St. Michaelis church in Adorf/Vogtland and at the historic event venues of the Royal parks of Bad Elster. The programmatic view focusses, in addition to the international anniversary of the Reformation, also to the 170th anniversary of the world-famous romanticist Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who was also active in Saxony.
