Golf and Culture - the perfect combination for connoisseurs

Golf and Culture - the perfect combination for connoisseurs

The day belongs to golf, of course. However, if you spend your golfing holiday in the Golf Alpin regions of SalzburgerLand and Tyrol, you should also pack your elegant evening wear in addition to your golf bag. Culture also belongs to the beautiful pleasures in life, as does golf. And there are many cultural offers available especially in the summer months and for every taste. From the world-famous Salzburg Festival to the cool Film Festival in Kitzbühel.

Due to the proximity of many Golf Alpin hotels and golf clubs to the cities of Salzburg and Innsbruck, you can easily combine your golfing holiday with a great city trip. And of course, your hosts are not only helpful in booking your tees on the golf course, but also with purchasing tickets for your cultural evening.

Cultural offers in SalzburgerLand

The special flair of the Salzburg Festival attracts not just lots of celebrities to the City of Mozart every year. Operas, concerts and dramas, including the famous Everyman at the Cathedral Square, provide a diverse, high-calibre programme. Tip: At the Siemens Festival Nights on the Kapitalplatz, the best performances of recent years will be shown on a big screen.

From 22nd to 25th August 2019 at the Jazzfestival Saalfelden, the international jazz world is playing once again. On these four days, more than 50 concerts take place across several stages. For this, the 40th anniversary, the festival and its surroundings are being redesigned. There are new stages in the city amidst the picturesque mountain landscape, where there are also concerts. 

Throughout the summer, the Salzburg Philharmonic under the direction of Elisabeth Fuchs will perform summer concerts in Bad Hofgastein. On the program, there are orchestra and family concerts, concerts on the Alpine pastures as part of “Alm:Klassik” as well as salon orchestra concerts. All concerts have free admission on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. 

At the 20th Golling Castle Festival, as per the motto “Beautiful Times”, there is a successful blend of art and cuisine on the program. Robert Reinagl, Otto Schenk, Karl Markovics, Nicole Beutler, Angelika Kirchschlager, Heinz Marecek and Max Simonischek are just some of the musical names that are performing in the castle from 16th July to 29th August 2019. 

Cultural offers in Tyrol

Every six years, the “Erler” take their famous Passion Plays on stage and thus keep alive a centuries-old custom. And it’s that time again in 2019. The distinctive scene design of the crossroads, a specially composed passion music presented live by choir and orchestra, a current and modern text by Felix Mitterer and an atmospheric lighting design characterise the Erler Passionsspiele. On show until 5th October 2019.

The Innsbruck Festival of Ancient Music is characterised by concerts and operas with Baroque and Renaissance music at its finest. This year, the festival weeks from 16.07.2019 - 27.08.2019 will be marked by the commemoration of Maximilian I and the musical treasures of his time.

The historic walls all around. The views over them. The fortress city at one’s feet. The green Inn. The Tyrolean mountains as a natural backdrop. With music sounding above them all. On stage, there are established stars of the Vienna People’s Opera together with talented young artists. Ballet. Soloists. This overall combination is what makes the staging of the Operetta Summer Kufstein from 2nd to 17th August 2019 so appealing.

From 25th July to 31st August 2019, Telfs is dedicated to the Tyrolean Folk Spectacles. Professionals and amateurs work out very different pieces at this theatre festival year after year. On the one hand, they strive for the upkeep of the folk theatre heritage, while on the other hand being also quite open to modern folk theatre. The venues are different every year. In 2019, Felix Mitterer's piece “Sold Home - the Memory of Houses” is on the program.
