Winter festival in the Volksgarten in Salzburg | © Tourismus Salzburg / G. Breitegger


28 November 2019 – 6 January 2020

Winterfest in Salzburg has long since earned an international name for itself in the contemporary circus world. In fact, this cultural event has developed into the biggest festival for modern circus artistry in the German-speaking regions, and only the very best circus groups are invited to appear.

The Fascination of the Circus

Around 30,000 visitors gather every winter under the big tops in the Volksgarten. There, they are captivated by a world full of compelling acrobatics, gentle poetry and bizarre tales. The icing on the festival “cake” is provided by an exciting fringe program along with a wide selection of mouthwatering culinary opportunities.

The Philosophy of Winterfest

The philosophy behind Winterfest is simple: Give people an oasis of peace and reflection during the otherwise so hectic run-up to Christmas. A visit to Winterfest is an evening filled with wonder and adventure, best enjoyed in combination with the delicious refreshments which are offered right there. The Volksgarten is an ideal venue, not least because it looks back on a long tradition of providing enjoyment to the public.
