International Händel Festival

Music in Göttingen

Lovers of baroque music, in particular that of adopted Briton George Friedric Händel, flock to Göttingen for this extravaganza, held in mid-May. Running since 1920, it's grown to incorporate a kids' festival and a program of talks, recitals, exhibitions of antique instruments (at Göttingen University) and other events.
