Culture Calendar Save the date as there are plenty of great events scheduled for the weeks to come. From music festivals and exciting exhibitions to fantastic sport events and social highlights, Discover Germany’s Culture Calendar is your perfect guide to what not to miss in March. TEXT: INA FRANK

Creativ Salzburg (4 – 6 March)

Artistika, Visp (5 March)

This trade fair is all about gift ideas, home accessories and other lifestyle products. Thanks to it being scheduled at the beginning of March, it is the perfect opportunity to order spring and Easter goods or to take a gander at the upcoming autumn trends. www.creativsalzburg.at

At this international artistry festival, you will surely be entertained: six artists present their skills and seem to break physical laws with their bodies to gain the prestigious trophy. The jury is made up of expert artists who will perform themselves, and the audience may select its favourite as well. www.artistika.ch

Turkish-German Film Festival, Nuremberg (4 – 13 March)

Diagonale Film Festival, Graz (8 – 13 March)

The Turkish-German film festival commits itself to an intercultural dialogue and showcases short films, feature films and documentaries. An expert jury will elect the most excellent performances, but in the category Filmlandschaften (film landscapes) films can also be shown out of competition. www.fftd.net

This festival regards itself as a forum for presenting and discussing Austrian films so that Austrian filmmakers gain greater media attention. This idea turned out to be successful: since 1998, 25,000 visitors come annually to Graz for the festival. www.diagonale.at/en
