ART AND CULTURE
Salzburg is a province with intensive cultural tradition which extensively goes back to the past. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the best-known son of Salzburg, can be regarded as the highlight of the musical tradition.
This tradition is still maintained today – through the world-renowned Salzburg Festival which annually attracts thousands of art lovers and lovers of culture from all over the world to Salzburg and this since 1920. Especially the music, but also significant theatrical events established the world-wide reputation of this festival. The annual centre of attraction is of course also the open-air performance “Jedermann” in front of the overwhelming coulisse of the Salzburg Cathedral.
