Salzburg: Whitsun & Summer Festivals
Be transported by the immortal masterpieces of Baroque
‘Art is a language that reveals what is hidden, tears open what is sealed, and gives shape to what is deep inside. It exhorts, excites, unsettles and delights.’
- Nikolaus Harnoncourt, 75th anniversary of the Salzburg Festival
In Salzburg, beauty is everywhere.
Salzburg has earned the nickname "Rome of the North" with its wide variety of architectural styles: medieval, Romantic, Renaissance and Baroque, and has been a prominent location for hosting music festivals since 1877. From its incredible fortress, the city dazzles with baroque beauty: a veritable forest of spires nestled in an idyllic mountain setting.
