Summer festivals in Austria: the high time of culture
Salzburg, Bad Ischl; Hallstatt: dazzling summer festival events
Especially suitable for
During July and August Salzburg, Bad Ischl and the Salzkammergut all turn into one whirlwind of high profile cultural events and performances in Austria. The world famous summer festivals in Austria: culture between lakes, mountains and festival halls.
The Salzburg Festivals are world famous – and rightly so. With an A-Z of high profile international opera stars, orchestras and conductors year after year they bring not only the who’s who of culture-hungry stars and starlets, but also those who truly appreciate music and drama, to Austria during the months of July and August and have done so since the 1920s. “Everyman” written by playwright Hugo von Hoffmannsthal and the performance on August 22nd 1920 directed by Max Reinhardt marked the hour of birth of the Salzburg Festival.
From the White Horse Inn the journey to the Salzburg festival hall for an opera performance is a short and pleasant one, and if you have tickets for the equally famous Lehár Festival in Bad Ischl, or a performance for “Everyman” (Jedermann) in Mondsee instead of Salzburg it is an equally short trip.
The White Horse Inn in St. Wolfgang is an ideal holiday home for a cultural holiday in Austria between mountains, lakes and the festival halls.
During the day you enjoy the views across the shimmering Lake Wolfgang, soak in the sunshine at the sun terrace or sunbathing area before refreshing yourself with a dip in the Lake pool or Lake Wolfgang itself. And at night: you focus on what is happening on stage during a Mozart opera, a “Jedermann” performance or a concert at the Lehár festival, indulging in the music and voices of international top stars.
You will see, the music will bring your thoughts back to the beautiful views of Lake Wolfgang sooner or later, as it is your romantic four star superior hotel, situated in the heart of St. Wolfgang.
Culture, opera and music have always been at home in Austria. Follow in the tracks of world famous composers and artists and experience the exciting atmosphere that sweeps through Salzburg, Bad Ischl, Mondsee, Hallstatt and the whole Salzkammergut region in Austria during the summer festival months.
