MUSIC IN ITS PUREST FORM

Authentic, unadulterated melodies – that's what you can expect at this traditional music event held in Murnau's peat bog. At the foot of the magnificent alpine backdrop, more than a dozen folk music groups from all parts of Germany and Austria gather every year on the first Sunday in September. Musicians play to audiences at three different locations in Murnau's peat bog – the Drachenstich (the site of the slaying of the dragon), St George's Chapel and the Ähndl restaurant and chapel.

The afternoon's entertainment is organised by the Murnau Tourist Information Centre and the Camerloher Musikschule (a local music school) under the artistic direction of Anita Staltmeier-Gruber. Hungry visitors are catered for at the beer garden of the Ähndl Restaurant, where Bavarian snacks and delicacies are on the menu. And the women of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen chapter of the Bavarian Association of Farmers treat visitors to homemade cakes and coffee from Murnau's coffee roasting house, as well as fresh fried Schmalznudeln.

The Folk Music Open-Air started back in 2007 as part of the Jugendkulturtage (young people's cultural week) hosted in Murnau, and its fan base has been grower ever since. It all comes down to the enjoyment of top-class music and the musical interaction between the performers.
