Easter in Salzburg

Inspired by the slowly awakening spring, Salzburg offers an exceptional, multicultural program during this year’s Easter week. Special highlights will be the Salzburg Easter Festival and the traditional Easter market at Salzburg’s Open Air Museum.

     The Salzburg Easter Festival
     (March 23 – April 01 2013)

     The Festival begins each year on Saturday
before Palm Sunday with an opera premiere and
ends on Easter Monday , when the opera is
traditionally performed a second time. In
between there are scheduled six evenings with
concerts of the “Sächsische Staatskapelle
Dresden” and the choir “Chor des Bayerischen
Rundfunks”. Christian Thielemann debuts as new
Artistic Director of the Salzburg Easter Festival.
