X. “Welcoming the Alps” Festival


Austria – Abtenau, Salzburg region


23 – 26 September 2022


169 euro

Salzburg is one of the most beautiful areas of Europe. It is also a very popular place for hiking. The crystal-clear lakes of Salzkammergut (Wolfgangsee, Mondsee), the charming small towns (Hallstatt, St. Wolfgang) or the Hohe Tauern National Park provide wonderful experiences.
The sights of Salzburg (Mirabell-garden, Mozart-Haus, Cathedral, Hohensalzburg Fortress) are visited by tens of thousands of tourists each year.
Abtenau is a small town in this region, between thousands of metres of mountains, where ensembles are invited to the art festival at the end of September.
