Austria's Greatest Music Festivals: By Invitation Only
Expertly-planned exclusive music and culture trip to Austria on the occasion of the Salzburg Festival, often called the greatest festival of classical music in the world, as well as the Bregenz Festival, a spectacular open-air lakeside production . Following our motto “By Invitation Only”, our guests will be given access to places that are normally closed to the public. You will sleep and dine in a private castle by invitation of the owners. On your visits of art galleries, museums and castles, you will be introduced to the directors and owners and get private tours by no others than leading experts in their field.
The Bregenz Festival is special: A traditional opera house, home to less-known operas, and an open-air lakeside stage, where productions are held in the most spectacular fashion. For four weeks in the summer, audiences can experience grand open-air opera productions in a unique setting.
The Salzburg Festival has often been called the greatest festival of classical music in the world. Every year it attracts the biggest stars of classical music and the city of Salzburg breathes arts in the summer months.
We select the “la crème de la crème” of the program of the prestigious Salzburg and Bregenz Festivals.
