Festivals for all Senses
Austria's renowned festivals have long attracted culture lovers from all over the world, such as the dramatic, monumental productions of the Bregenzer Festspiele and its lakeside stage, offering an entirely new opera experience. At the Salzburger Festspiele, international celebrities from politics and economy meet culture lovers from near and far. Despite being the most important Schubert festival in the world, the Schubertiade in Hohenems and Schwarzenberg still manages to maintain an intimate atmosphere. Culinary delights, a castle with a park, modern architecture and a range of world-class concerts come together at the Musikfestival Grafenegg, and even jazz, dance and performance festivals have established themselves as cultural events of the highest quality in Austria.
On top of this, there are many smaller festivals that explore exciting topics, which are closely related to each region. "Jazz on the Mountain" can be heard at the Jazzfestival Saalfelden, and Austria's World Music in the Waldviertel at the Schrammel Klang Festival. At the La Strada Street Theatre Festival in Graz, audiences gather year after year to marvel at puppet shows and acrobatic performances. And the Klangspuren Festival of contemporary music in Schwaz skillfully combines regional artists with international stars.
Every year the rich variety of festivals and concerts between Bregenz and Vienna invites you on a journey for all senses. Be inspired by our selection!
