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. 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. 

We have selected “la crème de la crème” of the program of the prestigious Salzburg Festival in 2017.

“Aida”, a new production of Verdi’s popular opera, under the baton of Maestro Riccardo Muti.

Mozart’s “La Clemenza di Tito” will be staged in the former Riding School - the location (a disused quarry) never fails to create a unique atmosphere.

Tickets for Aida have long been sold out.

Several exclusive invitations will be extended to So Me Travel clients only:

  • Schloss Kogl You are invited by Baroness Monika Mayr-Melnhof to stay at the private palace for 3 nights. On your arrival day the palace’s private chef will prepare a special dinner for the Baroness and her guests - including venison from the palace’s own hunting grounds.
  • Habsburg Residence His Imperial Highness Markus Habsburg-Lothringen invites you to Empress Sissi’s former summer residence and will personally give you a tour. He is the great grandson of Empress Sissi and Emperor Franz Josef.
  • Clam Castle Private lunch with Carl Philip Count of Clam at the castle, the family’s private home. The Count’s great grandfather was appointed Prime Minister by Emperor Karl of Austria. 
  • Liechtenstein Palace The Viennese palace of the Princes of Liechtenstein (the ruling family of the country of Liechtenstein) is normally not open to the public. You are invited to visit the impressive residence and art collection.
