Weimar goes international! Jazz, rock, folk, pop and soul resound in the heart of the city. Music and culture from the most diverse parts of the world come together in Schaller’s Erbenhof. You will be enchanted at every single event of the Schallkultur Festival. Artists from all over the world perform their musical styles and make Weimar a place where everyone feels connected.
The inner courtyard of Erbenhof, with its three-winged U-shaped palace and the new Bauhaus-style building, is the ideal place to let yourself be carried away by the music. A sonorous and inviting atmosphere awaits you and offers you an enjoyable evening.
In 2023 we welcome many national and international artists on our stage in Weimar! Tickets are available in our ticket shop (in German).

What at first seems like an unusual combination quickly turns out to be a perfect one when you see them. The band harmonises perfectly while switching between the most diverse musical styles, all of which they nevertheless master completely. But that’s not where the harmony ends, because the ladies gradually build a harmonious relationship with the audience as well. Listen to the songs of Tom Waits interpreted by the likeable New York trio.
Note: change of date!
Friday, 19.08.2022, 8.00 p.m.
If there is one word that can best describe the Lebanese band MASAA, it is “coming together”. This is also evident from the composition of the band members: talented and enthusiastic musicians come together from the Arab region and find a new sound in the common centre.

Raphael Wressnig & The Soul Gift Band feat. Gisele Jackson
Saturday, 11.06.2022, 8.00 p.m.
The Styrian musician Raphael Wressnig is an artist who deliberately breaks the boundaries of music. Whether soul, blues or funk, Wressnig has mastered them all. This mixture of three kinds of music is rounded off by the blues-soaked voice of Gisele Jackson, who has already been heard in Ray Charles’ and James Brown’s choirs, not without reason.
Cancelled: Nani Noam Vazana (Israel)
Thursday, 02.06.2022, 8.00 p.m.
In the sea of the European music scene, Nani Naomi Vazana clearly stands out. The artist sings in the almost forgotten Ladino language, giving her music something truly unique. The mixture of historical language and lyrics with modern themes bring the whole wealth of exotic music to the Weimar stage!
