Salzburger Festspiele

First held in 1920, the Salzburg Festival is one of the cultural highlights of the year. Alongside the regular residency of the Vienna Philharmonic, musicians and ensembles of the highest calibre fill the alpine city with music and drama.

Every summer the Salzburger Festspiele dominate the Baroque city of Salzburg. Some of the greatest artists of classical music appear on the stage of the Festspielhaus, and international stars like Anna Netrebko, Ricardo Muti and Edita Gruberova have become regulars here.

In the splendid ambience of Salzburg and its Domplatz, thousands of performers demonstrate the harrowing story of the life and death of the rich man in Hugo von Hofmannsthal's "Jedermann", staged here annually since the festival began in 1920. Visitors can also experience contemporary theatre on Hallein's Perner Island, in the middle of River Salzach.

Being Salzburg's major festival, we advise that you secure tickets to the Salzburger Festspiele well in advance to avoid disappointment. Salzburg Tourist Office is pleased to assist you here and put together tailor-made Festival Packages, ideal for both personal travel and larger groups.
