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. A cultural highlight that you should not miss on your spring holiday in the Salzkammergut!
