Alpine Route

 

Of monks and farmers, citizens and festivalgoers

 

The Alpine Route of the European Route of Historic Theatres leads through the south of Germany and through Switzerland to major forms of the European theatre building: the oldest theatre in a monastery, a rural theatre,

a city theatre, an Italian-style opera house, an intimate theatre and two very different festival theatres. Discover this unexpected variety of theatre life in the stunning Alpine landscape!
