There is magic in the air above the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen when the world's best pyrotechnicians light up the night sky with their fireworks displays. The International Fireworks Competition is one of the most prestigious competitions of its kind in the world. Five teams from around the world compete against one another every year in the baroque gardens.
On five summer evenings between May and September 2017 five terrific teams will once again turn the The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen, acclaimed as the “best historic garden in Europe”, into a splendid backdrop for magnificent pyrotechnic displays. Some 55,000 visitors are expected in all; they can look forward to sophisticated pyrotechnic effects and breathtaking impressions created to this year’s obligatory piece of music and in the following individual free display.
Herrenhausen Gardens – where the world meets
The participating teams are from Spain, Austria, England, Poland and the United States. It is the first time for 19 years that a US team has taken part in the competition: “Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks” put on more than fifty pyromusical shows in the US every year, and are particularly distinguished by their daring innovations, their superb colour and their complex images. Before each show visitors can enjoy an atmospheric accompanying programme of live music, performance art and drama precisely attuned to the country concerned. Winner of previous years: Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland and Mexiko.
