Maiwoche Osnabrück

Since its foundation in 1972, the Maiwoche (May Week) in Osnabrück has developed into a family-friendly festival popular well beyond the region. It offers a diverse programme of high-quality music, performed on numerous squares and stages throughout the town centre.


On Wednesday, the 11th of March 2020, the authorities of Lower Saxony announced that all upcoming events in locations that hold more than 1,000 visitors are hereby cancelled until further notice. This was declared by the minister of health and human services, Ms Carola Reimann, at a press conference in Hannover. Additionally, risk assessments for all events expecting less than 1,000 visitors will be conducted. These precautions have been taken in order to prevent the coronavirus from spreading. The decision to cancel large events is based on recommendations made by the federal minister of health Mr Jens Spahn (CDU). According to the public health department, the regulation also includes theatre plays as well as assemblies and meetings in restaurants.
