Founded in 1987 by Michael Herrmann, the RMF has grown to be one of Germany’s most acclaimed festivals showcasing international orchestras, ensembles and soloists. Programmes cover various genres including classical music, cabaret, jazz, readings, musical cruises, children’s concerts, wine tastings and culinary events with music. Concerts are held in historical architecture, such as Eberbach Abbey and Schloss Johannisberg, in the wine-growing Rheingau region between Wiesbaden and Lorch. Traditionally, the festival begins and ends in Eberbach Abbey with a concert of the hr-Sinfonieorchester, broadcast live.
