Events from national and international stars of the rock, pop, classic or folk music scene fill large the arenas and concert halls of Nuremberg; the smaller venues are places to enjoy cultural tidbits in a more intimate atmosphere. The active independent scene in Nuremberg has a long tradition and so dance theater, genre-bridging projects and jazz and chamber music fill the event calendar throughout the year. Almost any day you can see performances of regional rock bands, international shooting stars and innovative local ensembles – from rock to classic to dance.
With the Arena Nuremberg, the Frankenhalle and the Meistersingerhalle, Nuremberg has three large performance halls with a capacity of 2,000 to 10,000 seats. Whereas the two modern concert halls are fully equipped with the most up-to-date infrastructure and presentation and stage technology, the historical atmosphere and acoustics of the Meistersingerhalle are predestined for classical music.
If you enjoy romantic musical evenings under the stars, Nuremberg has two exceptional venues during the summer: The ruins of St. Catherine’s Church and the Serenadenhof in the Congress Hall. The main venue of Musica Sacra is the historical Church of St. Sebald, home to a distinguished Bach Orchestra, and the independent scene brings more than 200 performances of dance theater, music theater, jazz, chamber music and theater to the stage of the Tafelhalle each year.
