Blue sky, fresh foliage, three concerts, and an opera: with world-famous artists and the flair of the Alpine landscape in spring, the Easter Festival is sure to impress.
Herbert von Karajan founded the Salzburg Easter Festival (Osterfestspiele) in 1967. The gifted conductor led the musical festival up until his death in 1989. To this day, the Easter Festival (Osterfestspiele) hasn’t lost its charm. You can find the programme for 2015’s Easter Festival here.
Every Saturday before Palm Sunday, international celebrities, politicians, art lovers and culture vultures flock to Salzburg for the operatic premiere of the Easter Festival. On this day, exclusivity meets artistic brilliance at the big festival house (Großes Festspielhaus). The Dresden Orchestra is the greatest symphony orchestra at the Easter Festival (Osterfestpiele).
Between opera performances and concerts, you should still have time to enjoy the unparalleled atmosphere of Salzburg in the spring. Salzburg shows its best side around Easter. The mountains above the city are bright green, and there are flowers as far as the eye can see. The emerald green waters of the Salzach flow serenely through the city that Mozart called home. The cafés along the river invite you to enjoy the spring sunshine as you look forward to that evening’s concert or the Easter Festival. Hop on the saddle and discover Salzburg in the spring by bike. You can hire a bike at the hotel or from nearby “Mozartplatz”.
