And the luxury hotel Goldener Hirsch
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.

The Salzburg Easter Festival is known as one of the most famous and exclusive classical music festivals of the world. It has always fulfilled its founder Herbert von Karajan's demand for the highest artistic quality, also because of the cooperation with the Berlin Pilharmonic Orchestra from 1967 until 2012 and the particular artistic director. The current artistic director of the Easter Festival, Christian Thielemann, conducts the Festival with te Saxonian State Orchestra Dresden into a new era since 2013. Operas, orchestral and choral concerts, chamber concerts and youth projects form a first-class Festival programme on the highest artistic level for arts and culture enthusiasts.
