    From Christ's Ascension Day, Thursday 25 May to Sunday, 28 May 2017, daily from 10 am to 6 pm, directly on the shores of Upper Bavarian Lake Ammersee.

    Every year, 150 potters from many countries meet in Europe in the Upper Bavarian market town of Diessen am Ammersee. They show a cross-section of contemporary ceramics for four days: dishes, garden ceramics, decorative objects, art.
    Look forward to exciting days at Europe's largest ceramic festival and enjoy the artists' colony Diessen with its rich art and culture, with its internationally protected nature, the water town and the Bavarian host culture - all between the cities of Augsburg and Munich and opposite the Heiligenberg with the monastery Andechs.
