About Salzburg Festival

The Salzburg Festival, known as Salzburger Festspiele in German, is a popular festival of music, drama, and opera since 1920. The festival is held annually for 5 weeks in the quaint Austrian town of Salzburg.  

Salzburg Festival History

Salzburg is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and marks a cultural heritage for classical music. In 1877, the International Mozarteum Foundation held sporadic festivals but was discontinued in 1910. 


The outbreak of World War I prevented any revitalization of the festival and it wasn’t until 1918 when the festival was brought back to life. There were 5 founders behind the Salzburg Festival’s resurrection:


  • Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Poet & Dramatist;

  • Richard Strauss, Composer;

  • Alfred Roller, Scenic Designer;

  • Franz Schalk, Conductor

  • Max Reinhardt, Director 


On August 22, 1920, the Salzburg Festival was officially inaugurated with an opening performance of Hofmannsthal’s Jedermann by Reinhardt at the Salzburg Cathedral. Since its opening, this performance has become the tradition that sparks the start of the festival each year. 

UNESCO World Heritage Site

Since 1997, the Salzburg Festival has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for its “outstanding value to humanity.” 


The historic district of Salzburg offers rich sightseeing for tourists with architectural design from the Baroque era. The city runs along the River Salzach and has a charm that is enjoyed while taking a leisurely stroll on foot.
