A Salzburg cultural highlight since the beginning of the 20th century
The Salzburg Festival is one of the premier quality music festivals in the world. It combines musical tradition and innovation, brings first-class musicians to the city of Mozart, and invites music fans from the entire world to visit Salzburg. The Salzburg Festival began in August 1920 when Max Reinhardt brought Hugo von Hofmannsthal's "Everyman" to the stage on Salzburg's Cathedral Square for the very first time. Over the years, the Festival has become a true highlight of Austrian and international culture.
