Venezianische Messe Ludwigsburg

9th to 11th September 2022

A glittering festival full of colour and joie de vivre - that is the Venezianische Messe in Ludwigsburg.

More than 250 years ago, Duke Carl Eugen succumbed to the charm of the Venetian carnival in the Italian lagoon city and introduced the Mask Festival to his royal residence. The Venezianische Messe enchants the Ludwigsburg market place into a magical and imaginative scenery.

Celebrate with us from 9th to 11th September 2022 this festival of the senses, unique in its kind. Experience the magic of breathtaking masks and costumes. Look forward to a top-class programme of acrobatics, music, drama, fire magic, comedy, stilt theatre, dance and song. At this colourful festival, southern joie de vivre and Swabian cosiness, Mediterranean flair and baroque ambience, past and present, dream and reality melt together.
