The Salzburg Festival is a classical music festival, featuring opera performances as well as classical concerts with world famous conductors or the world premiers of plays.
Its roots go back to the 1920's when the music festival was founded as "a symbol of reconciliation of a generation torn by wars," by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Max Reinhardt and others. <== Back
Today people from all over the world (mostly rich people, because the ticket prices are generally very high) come to Salzburg during the Festival season (from end of July to the end of August) to enjoy some culture.
Off the Festival season you can look behind the scenes of the Salzburg Festival while joining a guided tour through the Festival Halls. <== Back
