This is an event for Freundeskreis members and invited guests. Tickets can only be booked via the Freundeskreis webshop.

From the Streichquartettfest over the Musikfestival to the third edition of the Liedfestival – without the Heidelberger Frühling Freundeskreis, the diverse festival programmes of Heidelberger Frühling in 2024 would not have been possible. The approximately 1,200 music enthusiasts of all ages are not only sponsors, but also personal ambassadors who play a key role in shaping the family atmosphere of the concerts.

At the new Karlstorbahnhof in Südstadt, Heidelberger Frühling would like to thank everyone for their great commitment and toast the start of the Liedfestival. On Marlene-Dietrich-Platz in the open air, you can expect serious and funny music, art and entertainment, amateurs and professionals from 4 pm. We would also like to invite you to the subsequent concert at 8 pm at the Karlstorbahnhof (tickets can be booked via the webshop, by telephone on +49 (0)6221 584 0044 or by email to
