Bach Festival
Since 1946 in a three yearly rhythm, the large event with various themes to the life and work of Johann Sebastian Bach takes place in Schaffhausen.

One year after the end of the Second World War, future and music oriented people in the border and bridge town of Schaffhausen set a peace and forgiveness signal that was heard and celebrated. In the tradition of Johann Sebastian Bach and his musical message the International Bach society was founded. Since then it has been closely associated with the town of Schaffhausen and has hosted 21 Bach festivals.
