Open Flair is a rock music festival in Eschwege, Germany. Now with over 30 years experience in the business, the festival has built a devoted fanbase of rock music lovers.
As it has developed and grown, more and more internationally renowned acts have made their way onto the lineup; but the festival still maintains its dedication to supporting and booking the very best German bands, who continue to find themselves in the majority across the long weekend.
But with recent editions featuring performances from the likes of Sum 41, Rise Against, Enter Shikari, Biffy Clyro and even Iggy Pop, the festival is more than capable of competing on a global scale.
Almost exactly in the centre of the country, Eschwege is a beautiful German town with a population of 20,000. It is situated within the district seat of Werra-Meißner-Kreis.
The nearest major city to the festival is Hanover. From there, trains to Göttingen take around half an hour (running hourly), a subsequent train on to Eschwege takes a similar amount of time. Accounting for transfer time, the journey should take between 1.5 and 2 hours.
No, but the festival is located less than 5 minutes from the centre of Eschwege, where there are many banks and ATMs available.
