Travelling to the Salzburg Easter Festival

The Grosses Festspielhaus is situated in the middle of the old town of Salzburg, close to the Neutor (Sigmundstor) and right next to the Mönchsberg. The Ticket Office of the Salzburg Easter Festival is located on the other side of the street in the so called "Schüttkasten" (house number 11).

Travelling by Car

Salzburg lies at the intersection of the Western motorway A1, the Tauern motorway A10 and the German motorway A8 to Munich. Since it is almost impossible to park in the old part of town (only drivers with disabled stickers are allowed to part opposite the Festspielhaus), it is advisable either to park outside the centre, or to use one of the two underground garages in the old town (the Mönchsberg garages) from which you can get direct access to the Festspielhaus through the Mönchsberg.
