rotenburg guitar festival

8 days a festival for guitar

Saturday, July 27 - Sunday, August, 04, 2019

Welcome to our new website!

We changed the webhost and completely redesigned our site. At the moment we are still expanding the pages, but the most important information is already available and you can even register for the next Rotenburger Gitarrenwoche 2019.

"What a magic place!" once said Luis Molina (Cuba). We live in a small but charming Landheim (dormitory) in a small village in northern Germany. An enchanting place in the middle of a small forest. Here you immediately relax, forget the rest of the world and enjoy a week of guitar with good friends like in a big family. And because that's how it is, everyone is welcome - from beginners to professionals of all ages.
Here you will find detailed information about the course: more
