Enjoy life at the Esslingen Summer Festival
ESTiVAL - Enjoyment by the river
4th - 16th August 2023
Esslingen celebrates the summer full of enjoyment. ESTiVAL Esslingen - this is the new festival jewel in the city's calendar of events. Seven festival hosts invite you to gastronomic delights - and all this in the heart of the Old Town. The market square with its beautiful half-timbered backdrop is the scene of 13 days of splendid celebrations. And every day there is a cultural programme to entertain you.
This is where enjoyment is top priority
Meet friends - have a good time - enjoy life! That's how ESTiVAL works.
The 7 hosts
In twenty festival pavilions they spoil you: they are the real stars of the (F)estival. From classic Swabian to tradition rethought. From international to regional interpretations. From "Kässpätzle" fresh from the pot to vegetarian "Zwiebelzupfern": The cuisine here is preferably regional, because here the wine from the Esslingen vines flows directly into the glass.
A summer full of highlights: daily changing cultural programme
In addition to Esslingen wine, sparkling wine and culinary delicacies, ESTiVAL delights with its daily entertainment and experience programme. Fascinating street artists, inspiring music and the children's and family day: ESTiVAL shows you the city as you have never experienced it before.
