Join fellow public radio jazz enthusiasts for a KJazz adventure to the glorious cultural capitals of central Europe. Your jazz journey begins in romantic Vienna, the capital of Austria. There we will visit Belvedere Palace to view works by Klimt and Monet. Stroll the lively streets, visit the Hofburg Palace and enjoy an evening of jazz and wine tasting. Next, we are off to the city of a hundred spires, Prague! The Czechs fell in love with jazz in the roaring 20s and that affair never ended. In addition to visiting Prague castle, the old town, Charles Bridge and sampling some of the Czech Republic's finest beers, you'll also enjoy outings to jazz clubs. The jazz adventure continues on to Berlin, Germany's bustling and uber hip capital. Throughout the 1920s Berlin was considered the cultural center of Europe. Along with Chicago, Paris and New York, Berlin was one of the great jazz centers in the 1920s and 1930s. Today the city is still packed with ballrooms, jazz clubs and top talent. The BERLIN JAZZFEST will be in full swing while we are there and we'll have tickets! Space is limited.

About JazzFest Berlin

For over 50 years, jazz musicians from Berlin and all over the world have come together to play at the Jazzfest, making the festival one of the oldest and most prestigious in Europe. Among its guests have been big names such as Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington. While famous US-jazz celebrities set the tone during the first decades, the Berlin Jazz Festival has progressively presented artists from all around the globe, with an increasing emphasis on contemporary European jazz.
