Without music, life would be a mistake. At the HanseKulturFestival we turn the entire Cathedral district into a stage. Music is played in the middle of the streets, in churches, in alleys and courtyards, and, of course, on stages. The Superkunst Stage on the river Obertrave starts off with a good dose of rock and pop and a touch of jazz. Street musicians in the "Malerwinkel" will enchant you with unique sounds and international rhythms invite you to dance along right next to the Lübeck Cathedral. Students of the local University of Music will also delight you with special concerts at various locations.
