Open Air Theatre

The open air theatre was built in 1955 to celebrate the 1200 year anniversary of the town. The terraced half round stage has a seating capacity of 2,500 people. The natural stage, which offers a delightful view of Starkenburg castle, has been the setting for a wide range of events, i. e. concerts with famous performers such as Joe Cocker, Meat Loaf and Jeanette. However, theatre events, opera as well as operetta evenings were carried out there. At times, 6,000 visitors came to the events that took place there. The amphitheatre can be reached, from the market place, within a few walking minutes.
