Nov 30, 2016 - Jan 08, 2017
The Winterfest in Salzburg has long since achieved international repute in the contemporary circus world. Only the very best circus troupes get to perform here, and this cultural event has now become the largest festival for modern circus artistry in the entire German-speaking area of Europe.
Every winter around 30,000 visitors are attracted to the big-tops in the Volksgarten where they enjoy a vast array of fascinating acrobatics, gentle poetic charm and crazy stories. The festival is fittingly accompanied by a fascinating programme of side events and a rich and varied array of culinary delights.
Philosophy behind the Winterfest
The philosophy behind the Winterfest is simple: to offer something special during the hectic (pre-) Christmas season: time and leisure for an evening with friends, an evening to share wonderful stories over a good glass of wine and culinary delicacies.
