Things to See in Breitenau

Now having become an integral part of the community’s, and indeed the whole Haiderbach’s, life, the St. Georgsbläser Haiderbach e.V. were founded in 1976. The club, with its 45-strong wind orchestra, is a fixture in community life and promotes musical talent among children and youths who live on the Haiderbach through a training orchestra, a youth orchestra, flute groups and early musical training. Besides appearances within the Haiderbach communities, such as at the traditional kermis, the St. Georgsbläser can always be heard at great shooting festivals, kermis parades and concerts. The yearly high point is the "Singende, klingende Haiderbach" with the Haiderbach Choir Association and the church choir, which always takes place on the first Saturday in April.
