St. Rupert's Day Fair
Every year in September, a fair is held on the city squares next to Salzburg Cathedral in honor of Saint Rupert. Antique fairground rides, market stalls serving regional specialties and a beer tent are some of the highlights of this traditional community celebration.
This festival in the heart of the historical district is a giant spectacle that appeals to young and old alike. Arts & crafts stands provide fascinating insights into all kinds of living traditions. Market stands tempt visitors with typical local foods and drinks.
