Questions & Answers

Does the guided visit include a tour of the Grosse Festspielhaus?
Yes, as a general rule, the Grosse Festspielhaus, the Felsenreitschule and the Haus für Mozart are all stops on our guided tours. Our venues are not a static museum, but rather a living place where art is produced the whole year round. As such, it may happen that tours do not visit all of the sites due to rehearsals or ongoing renovation work or are rescheduled altogether. We kindly ask for your understanding.
Is the backstage area open to visitors?
Yes, in principle, a look behind the scenes is part of every guided tour. However, during the ongoing Festival season, this is unfortunately not possible due to tight scheduling as well as for safety reasons.
Is the Felsenreitschule open to visitors?
Yes, as a general rule, the Große Festspielhaus, the Felsenreitschule and the Haus für Mozart are all stops on our guided tours. Our venues are not a static museum, but rather a living place where art is produced the whole year round. As such, it may happen that tours do not visit all of the sites due to rehearsals or ongoing renovation work or are rescheduled altogether. We kindly ask for your understanding.
Is it possible to visit the workshops?

Does the regular guided tour involve taking an elevator?
