Cultural Holidays in Salzburg in the Hotel Brandstätter

Art and culture in Salzburg

During the year Salzburg offers a wide range of cultural events to choose from: theatre, concerts, operas or readings – choose from a plethora of cultural offerings during your holidays in Austria.

The diverse and exciting cultural programme in Salzburg does not have to fear comparisons with those available in other bigger cities. The perfect interplay of several factors is responsible for the unique style of the city on the river Salzach: the picturesque location of the city between the city's mountains; the baroque architecture of Salzburg from the time of the Prince Archbishops of centuries long gone; the virtuosity of the abbots of the St. Peter's Monastery; and the idyllic surrounding region that makes Salzburg even more popular with visitors from all over the world.
