Salzburg Festival

The history of the Salzburg Festival and the history of the Hotel Goldener Hirsch, Salzburg, have always been closely entwined. When the Salzburg Festival took place for the first time in 1920, we were the Salzburg Festival's first host. Since then, we have been living the tradition with dedication and celebrate the busy Salzburg Festival weeks annually as an unforgettable event. Please allow us to complete your visit at the Salzburg Festival with our excellent service and lovely details.

Salzburg is worth a visit at any time of the year. But every year on the occasion of Salzburg Festival a very special flair comes up in Mozart's city. The Salzburg Festival is one of the most important music festivals in the world. Experience artistic classics and masterpieces of the Festival, like the Jedermann on the Cathedral Square, exemplary Mozart and Strauss performances, as well as a diverse and top-class play, opera and concert programme. The premiere of the Jedermann on 22 August 1920 marked the Salzburg Festival's hour of birth. In 1920, stage director Max Reinhardt declared the whole city of Salzburg a stage and put the medieval mystery play of the Jedermann in a textually amended version of Hugo von Hofmannsthal, co-founder of the Salzburg Festival, on the Cathedral Square.
