Dear Guests of the Siemens FestivalNights

For 20 years now, the Salzburg Festival, Siemens Austria, UNITEL, and ORF Salzburg have been hosting the popular Siemens FestivalNights. Well over 1 million visitors have come to Kapitelplatz to experience historical and current festival productions free of charge in the incomparable ambiance of Salzburg’s old town.

In compliance with the applicable safety requirements, the popular public viewing events will also be held this summer from July 24 to August 29, 2021. After registering and receiving a seat reservation, visitors can once again enjoy crowd-pleasing festival productions presented free of charge with state-of-the-art technology that is suitable for use in daylight and a sophisticated sound system. Don Giovanni – one of the absolute highlights of this year’s festival program – can be experienced for free.

A new addition awaits visitors in the form of the SiemensBreakfastConcert, which will be held every Saturday at 10:00 am and will feature a range of select concerts from the festival program – accompanied by a generous breakfast in the restaurant tent on the square, if desired.

Naturally, there will be plenty on offer for young culture fans, as well: The SiemensChildren’sFestival will present a colorful lineup of child-friendly operas and ballets. Highlights such as the beloved classic The Magic Flute will provide plenty of fun for young and old alike.

We wish you lots of entertainment amid the picturesque surroundings of Kapitelplatz with a marvelous view of Fortress Hohensalzburg!
