May to Septem­ber 2023: Han­over Fire­works: an Ex­plos­ive Com­pet­i­tion

This event is a ‘high light’ in the truest sense of the expression - the place where the best pyrotechnists from all over the world come together to compete. The combination of music, drama and fireworks simply gets under your skin. One frisson of pleasure follows another, and you find yourself wishing that the 25-minute performance would never end.

It is hardly possible to imagine a more marvellous backdrop than Hanover’s Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen for these breathtaking displays against the night sky. The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, recipients of the European Garden Award in 2015, have been an impressive horticultural highlight for more than 300 years, delighting tourists from all over the world.

Hours before darkness descends on the Baroque gardens, the supporting programme of live music, walking acts and dramatic art whets spectators’ appetite for the main event. In a nutshell: a true feast for all the senses.
