Salzburg Festival

One of the most renowned music festivals worldwide

The Festival and the ‘Jedermann’ performance have become an indispensable and integral part for Salzburg for almost 100 years. The Salzburg Festival has advanced to one of the most vital world music events most recently since the musical direction of Herbert von Karajan.  This first-class blend of top-notch performances and breathtaking venues has been worthwhile attending year after year.

In 2015, the Salzburg Festival will take place from July 18th to August 30th serving up an amazing program.  At the heart of it all are the Jedermann performances at the Cathedral Square with every new production worth seeing again. They have been attracting some of the most renowned actors and actresses of the German-speaking area to perform directly in front of the Cathedral’s portal.

Concerts, Operas, Theater, Matinées, …

There is hardly anything throughout the Festival which does not get offered ranging from sacred masterpieces of Church Music by Bach (B minor Mass) and Haydn (The Creation) to orchestral concerts of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Daniel Barenboim or the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra under Zubin Mehta all the way to Le nozze di Figaro and Mozart’s chamber concerts. Since you will be spoilt for choice, perhaps the best way for you is to take a look at the program yourself and indulge. It is, however, recommended to be quick: even though one can obtain remaining tickets at the evening box office for some performances, yet most of them are sold out very quickly in no time at all.

Dine Around at the m32 Restaurant in Salzburg

The exclusive Restaurant m32 with stunning views over Salzburg is located adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art on the Mönchsberg with the most stunning view over Salzburg. As part of our Dine-Around half-board experience, you may just as well enjoy dinner at m32 in lieu of eating at the HECHT! Restaurant at The Seehof Hotel in Goldegg – all of it without a surcharge. After your culinary delight, a short postprandial stroll or elevator ride will take you directly to the Festival area.

We recommend the Mönchsberg parking garage for your ride to Salzburg by car as well as in-time arrival.  There are more convenient times for taking a ride to Salzburg by car particularly in summer and during the Festival period.

The Seehof Hotel during the Festival

We are delighted that the Seehof Hotel in Goldegg serves as a very well appreciated retreat during the Festival period not only for our valued guests but also for actors and actresses, singers, musicians and Festival participants. Semi-public rehearsals, text repetitions at the bar and even performances at night in the restaurant and recitations could already be experienced.
