Welcome to the web-site of the 25th International Guitar-Festival Iserlohn - one of the largest Guitar Festivals in Europe - and to the 7th International Guitar-Competition Iserlohn 2016 (Altamira Competition / Prize of the Sparkassenstiftung).
The 25th International Guitar-Festival takes place from Sunday, July 17th to Sunday, July 24th 2016 (early arrival possible on Saturday, July 16th).
For our 25th anniversary the festival and the competition will take place at the same time. 30 (by video round) selected guitarists can participate during the festival in the competition.
Venue for both events is newly renovated, historically grown building complex Haus Villigst (in Schwerte, 8 km from Iserlohn), whose origins go back to a manor of the 12th century. In 1948 it was taken over by the Evangelical Church of Westphalia and established one of the first convention centers after the Second World War in Germany. Villigst offers comfortable rooms, well equipped group and meeting rooms and an experienced team that is at your side from the reception of the organization to the technical service.
All concerts will still take place in Iserlohn (Oberste Stadtkirche and Goldsaal of the Schauburg) - free transfers with busses will be organised by the festival.
