International Jazz Week

A whole week of jazz - 16 to 21 March 2021

Burghausen has been a byword for jazz since 1970. For one week every March, the town on the Salzach river becomes a Mecca for international jazz stars. Ella Fitzgerald, Chris Barber, Roy Hargrove, Chick Corea and Dave Brubeck have all performed in Burghausen. Alongside the major concerts in the old and new town, there are extra events, such as the jazz night in the pubs of the old  town, morning get-togethers over brunch, or the sessions in the Mautner castle’s Jazzkeller, where the celebrated music stars often make a spontaneous appearance. The annual jazz week is one of the biggest festivals of its kind in the world.

Burghausen is the “Bavarian New Orleans”. Guests from all over the world –  and of course the citizens of Burghausen themselves – turn night into the day and the lively hubbub of concert-goers and musicians shakes the town from its  cosy winter slumber – or more accurately its three-month “jazz withdrawal” –  with the extra power of jazz! Another jazz extra in Burghausen is the Jazz Academy that takes place several times a year in the Mautner castle.
