Event highlights 2023
On to the coast. Off to the water. There are places you yearn for that, once discovered, you want to experience again and again. They are the epitome of unique holiday highlights and collected favorite moments. Just like the imperial baths. Stunning sunrises. Perpetual sound of waves. Historical time travel. Culinary delights. Freshly caught traditions. Healing sea breezes. Starry Baltic Sea nights. Unforgettable events. A place of longing – to experience again and again. Whether on the beach, at barefoot concerts or at the summer cinema, but always with the sound of the waves in your ears and your feet in the sand. Or on the promenade, at the Ahlbeck Summer Festival or the Heringsdorf Imperial Days, but always with a view of the historical backdrop and an insight into times long past. Whether with art, at the literature days or the cabaret festival, but undoubtedly with top-class talent and impressive highlights. Or with sport, at Baltic Lights or the Kitesurf Masters, but certainly with a relaxed atmosphere and a rapid pace. In the imperial baths we celebrate small reunions and big premieres every day. But what remains are the moments that you want to capture for eternity and the experiences that you carry with you in your thoughts. Just too beautiful to pass. And their stages are the sea and the vastness, the villas and history. And we in between.

Four guys. Four microphones. German texts. Best entertainment. MAYBEBOP.
The press writes that nobody can resist their disarmingly natural manner and their joy of playing. That the vocal foursome gains maturity from program to program without losing freshness and entertainment value. That your ambiguous songs catch your ear, take a stand and hit the nerve of the times. That they know no stylistically any limitations. That the light and sound design sets standards.
The truth is: The guys from MAYBEBOP just get bored easily. They are constantly looking for new challenges to keep themselves entertained and to surprise audiences. There is no script, every evening is fresh and unique, every minute of the concert celebrates the moment. Anything but a standstill. The declared goal: Go!
By the way, MAYBEBOP does a cappella. But that doesn't really matter.

Searching the starry night, the horrible squeak is getting closer and closer. After a great shock, the squeaky secret turns out to be Knight Adelbert, a very old, rusty weathercock. He wants nothing more than a bit of grease, paint and a roof, oh! An adventurous relief operation begins.
