Each year, the festival has a new theme. In 2022, “PLANSCH” was chosen as the motto and title.

Chemnitz was named European Capital of Culture in 2025. But the city is not the only one to bear the title, it has been awarded to the entire cultural region. This includes the city of Thalheim. This connection is to be filled with life even before the actual festive year. Therefore, the 19th edition of the renowned art festival Begehungen 2022 will not take place in Chemnitz for the first time, but in Thalheim, about 15 kilometres away. Festival period will be the 11th to the 21st of August 2022.
“At the beginning of 2021, Thalheim Mayor Nico Dittmann drew our attention to the empty Erzgebirgsbad. We were immediately impressed after a visit. This is a unique opportunity for our festival idea, I would almost say a dream”, explains Lars Neuenfeld from Begehungen e. V. explaining the decision.
