Youth Music Tours to Austria
The region of Austria known as the Salzburgerland contains some of the most striking scenery in Europe, making a tour here an unforgettable experience. In Salzburg, don’t miss the two Mozart houses and the imposing fortress. Just outside Salzburg a visit to Hellbrunn Castle, with its superb gardens complete with famous novelty fountains, is always popular with the students. The mountains and lakes around Salzburg are spectacular – visit Zell am See and take a cable car to the top of the Schmittenhöhe for a stunning panoramic view over the Alps. Why not take in the views from a leisurely boat trip on Lake Wolfgang in the Austrian Lake District? Alternatively, it’s just a short trip over the German border to discover the fascinating saltmines and breathtaking natural beauty of the Berchtesgaden region.
Where to Perform
The outdoor stages at St Gilgen and Zell am See, both with beautiful lake views, and the Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg, where you can expect a truly international audience, are fantastic performance venues for both bands and orchestras.
Bad Ischl Church
Set in an historical spa town, the Bad Ischl Church welcomes sacred choirs to participate in Mass and perform short concerts.
Situated across the border in Germany, close to the Berchtesgaden national park, this pleasant small town offers performance venues in the town square for all groups.
Our Performance Highlight...
As the cultural hub of the village of Kaprun, a warm reception is guaranteed at this lovingly restored medieval castle. Nestled high in the mountains and perched on a cliff edge, this truly unique venue is steeped in history. Enthral your audience as the sun sets over the open-air courtyard, or inside in the remarkable medieval Knights’ Hall.
