Every two years, in the first weekend of January, jazz fever breaks out in Münster. Ensembles of international reputation and standing, interesting newcomers and a varied mix of styles form the successful recipe for this festival, which is rich in tradion. The three-day music event, which the WDR TV station and others carry live, is one of the most famous jazz festivals in Germany and in recent years has been sold out in advance.
