Swinging Hannover attracts several thousand jazz fans every year

Lower Saxony's Corona regulations do not permit large events, and the traditional jazz festival in the square in front of the New Town Hall attracts up to 40.000 people every year. Hopefully, things will be looking up next year, and first-class live music can once again be enjoyed on Ascension Day.

Event(s): 20.09.2020 
from 10:00 to 18:00 o'clock
