Mission Statement

For 21 years now, the Salzburg Festival, Siemens Austria, Unitel and ORF Salzburg have organized the already traditional Siemens Festival>Nights.

The free open-air highlight has become a cross-border attraction of the Salzburg Festival summer. Well over a million visitors have already come to Kapitelplatz to experience historical and current festival productions in the incomparable ambience of Salzburg's old town.with free admission and in compliance with all applicable safety regulations, festival productions will once again be shown from Saturday, July 23 to Sunday, August 28 in the best daylight-suitable technology on LED screens as well as sophisticated sound systems. With Il TRITTICO, THE MAGIC FLUTE and KÁŤA KABANOVÁ, three of the absolute highlights of this year's festival program can be experienced free of charge.


The popular Siemens>Breakfast>Concerts, always on Saturdays at 10 a.m., will also feature selected concert gems from the festival program - accompanied, if desired, by a hearty breakfast in the restaurant tent on the square. Of course, the youngest culture fans are not left out: the Siemens>Childrens>Festival program presents a colorful mix of operas suitable for children every Friday at 10 a.m. Highlights such as the beloved classic The Magic Flute for children provide a lot of fun for young and old.

We wish you good entertainment in the picturesque setting of Kapitelplatz with a view of Hohensalzburg Fortress.
