The world’s largest classical concert?

The title is claimed by the annual Klassik Open Air series in Nuremberg, which plays to 160,000 spectators.

It also claims to be Europe’s greenest concert hall.

Beat that, anyone?


If you’re anywhere near Nuremberg, it starts this weekend.

  • The largest classical concert each year is Le Concert de Paris on the 14th of July. Place: le Champs de Mars in front of the Eiffel tower, the Seine and the Trocadero. Number of spectators: between 600.000 and 800.000. Singers never fail to mention in their CV that huge amount. They never mention that probably 99% of the crowd arrivĂ©s to watch the spectacular fireworks afterwards. France 2 broadcasts all festivities.

  • It’s a real concert each year and it always has top singers. This year: tenor Jean-François Borras, soprano Aida Garafulina, mezzo Joyce Di Donato and baritone Matthias Goerne. If I remember correctly this tradition started in 2014 and most concerts can be watched on YouTube.
