Salzburg Festival and the Cultural Highlights of Hallein
The city of Hallein, with event venues such as the Zieglstadel, Salzberghalle, Salinenkapelle, Pernerinsel, Verdampferturm, Stadttheater and Stadtkino, offers culture-loving guests some 160 different projects and performances annually.
The Salzburg Festival also uses the former saltworks building on the Pernerinsel in Hallein for special productions during the summer months.
“Since 1992, the Pernerinsel is a venue for the Salzburg Festival.”
Lammertal HeuART-Fest in Salzburger Land
The world’s biggest parade of hay figures shows us that hay is far more than just dry grass – it’s art! As Lammertal impressively demonstrates every year during the HeuART festival.
The Lammertal HeuART figures are created with love for every detail. In fact, it’s an absolute joy to watch the creators in action. On the big day, the festively decorated floats are accompanied through town by bands of musicians, whip-crackers and folk-costume groups. Clearly showing that local folk traditions reach their annual zenith during Salzburg Harvest Festival.
A Diverse Program
Every year, the five Lammertal communities – Abtenau, Annaberg-Lungötz, Russbach and St. Martin – rotate as hosts of the event.
Artistic hay figures, local foods, live music
The next Lammertal HeuART-Fest will take place on 26th and 27th August, 2023 in Russbach. Visitors can look forward to the world’s biggest parade of hay figures, a food & crafts market, musical entertainment and so much more.
Harvest Festival in Salzburger Land
Harvest Festival takes place every year from the end of August until the beginning of November. In the so called “fifth season” in the SalzburgerLand there is a vast number of different things to do and experience: culinary highlights at the numerous inns, at the harvest festivals, at Almabtrieb festivals when the cattle returns from the mountain pastures and all the other festivities. All five participating Tennengau communities, including Abtenau, Annaberg-Lungötz, Bad Vigaun, Kuchl and St. Martin, invite locals and guests to participate in the festivities.
Festival at Golling Castle
The emblem of Golling, visible from afar, also serves as the impressive backdrop for a festival. For years, music lovers have been able to come to Golling Castle and experience musical culture presented at the highest level.
Internationally acclaimed soloists and famous ensembles present a diverse program that combines concerts with readings. Art & Music Forum Golling presents this exceptional international celebration of the performing arts.
