Salzburg Whitsun Festival on holiday by Lake Wolfgang

Wellness holiday at the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl, with cultural highlights in Salzburg

Cultural Whitsun Festival in Salzburg

Opera lovers take note: spring sounds the starting signal for the upcoming cultural programme! The first event is the Whitsun Festival in Salzburg. And for those who want to combine upscale culture with wellness by the lake, there's no place finer than the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl by Lake Wolfgang!

The Salzburg Whitsun Festival: THE cultural event in spring

The world-famous "Jedermann", or Everyman, by Hugo von Hofmannsthal and many other productions, opera performances and concerts fill the programme of the Salzburg Whitsun Festival. Whether Mozart, Strauss, Verdi or Schubert, every year at Whitsuntide you can enjoy world-famous operas.

In the Großes Festspielhaus, one of the largest concert halls in the world, you benefit from the best acoustic and visual conditions during the performance. Renowned Austrian and international conductors such as Herbert von Karajan have had a decisive influence on the Festspielhaus, or Festival Hall. The Großes Festspielhaus, built in 1960, also houses a wide variety of art treasures including the free standing-paintings "Dreams with the Wrong Solutions" by New York artist Robert Longo.

In addition, there are many other impressive concert stages to marvel at in Salzburg's old town such as the Haus für Mozart or the Felsenreitschule with its stone arcades. In addition to the Easter Festival and the Salzburg Festival, this is another cultural highlight that you should not miss during your vacation in the Salzkammergut!

Your hotel for a relaxing cultural holiday: the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl by Lake Wolfgang

The Salzburg Festival and the Hotel Im Weissen Rössl by Lake Wolfgang have something in common: both have legendary status! The hotel makes the ideal base if you're looking to relax after your visit to the Salzburg Whitsun Festival.

That's the formula for an utterly invigorating cultural break in Austria!

After an evening of culture in Salzburg, enjoy the ultimate in pleasure by Lake Wolfgang

After a visit to the Salzburg Whitsun Festival, return to the Romantik Hotel Im Weissen Rössl in St. Wolfgang, which is only about 50 minutes' drive from the city of Mozart. Culinary delights and first-class cuisine await you in the gourmet restaurant Poll's Kaiserterrasse. An exquisite, Austrian wine from the Rock Cellar is a must – the sommeliers will be happy to advise on which of the 500 wines stored in the wine cellar would be a worthy finale to your festival evening
