More than one hundred years ago, when artists thought up this Festival, Europe lay in ruins. And today, we once again feel that we have come to the threshold of tremendous change. Then as now, the mission of a festival is to open new intellectual spaces for our audience, to ask the essential questions of our times, using the great works of art as our guides.

Instructions of the hall staff must also be followed.

Are there print@home- / e-tickets?

From four weeks before the first performance booked, there is only the possibility to pick up the printed tickets on site or to book them as an e-ticket. Click here for instructions on E-tickets and their personalization.
How can tickets be repersonalized?
It is not necessary to re-personalize valid tickets if the name printed on the ticket corre-sponds to one of the visitors. A re-personalization of both tickets is only possible in exceptional cases for a fee of € 15.- directly through the ticket office of the Salzburg Festival.
How can I pay the bill for my tickets?
Payments should only be made after receipt of the invoice, quoting the purpose code, and within the time indicated on the invoice.
The Salzburg Festival accepts the following credit cards: Mastercard, American Express, Diners Club, Visa, JCB. Payment by bank transfer (charges to be paid by the purchaser), payment from the credit of the customer account, payment by vouchers as well as payment by bank card (Maestro) or cash payment on site are also possible.
From three weeks before the event date, only payment by credit card or cash / ATM payment on site is possible.
What to do if my ticket order was not successful?

These commission tickets are immediately up for sale. Please inform yourself about our current ticket offers.
Where can I find the list of available tickets?

The Salzburg Festival offers no special last-minute discounts.
Unauthorized providers and ticket vendors in front of the venues
The purchase for commercial or trade resale, as well as the transfer of tickets is prohibited without the prior consent of the Salzburg Festival. Even in the case of consent, point 4 applies. Furthermore, it is not permitted to offer tickets to the public via Internet auctions and marketplaces as well as on radio, in the press or in any other way. Salzburg Festival reserves the right to refuse to allow persons who violate this prohibition to purchase tickets in the future and to block existing tickets without replacement.
Can I purchase a voucher for a specific performance?
Vouchers can be purchased with a value specified by the customer, but these do not guarantee the allocation for specific performances. The voucher can be redeemed with all available tickets of the Salzburg Festival, which includes the Whitsun and summer festival. If you would like to pay for ordered tickets with a voucher, please note this on your order and give us the value and the coupon number. To settle an invoice, please send the original voucher by mail to the ticket office (Herbert-von-Karajan-Platz 11, A-5020 Salzburg).
Can I buy Salzburg Festival tickets as a Christmas present?
Subscriptions for the Whitsun festival are now available. As the allocation of tickets for the summer does not begin until January, unfortunately we can not confirm any ticket requests in time for Christmas. However, you have the opportunity to purchase vouchers at our ticket office.
Is Jedermann performed on the Domplatz (Cathedral Square) irrespective of the weather?
Since Jedermann performances on Domplatz (Cathedral Square) are openair performances, a weather risk cannot be excluded. In the event of rain or an uncertain weather situation (e.g. heavy rain or thunderstorms), the performance may be moved to the Grosses Festspielhaus. After 60 minutes, the performance is considered to have been completed; if the performance is cancelled earlier, the admission fee will be refunded on a pro rata basis. Due to the differences between the venues Domplatz and the Grosses Festspielhaus, it is not possible to guarantee a side-by-side position in the event of a performance of the Jedermann in the Grosses Festspielhaus, or to vary the position in line and spatial positioning in relation to Domplatz.
How do I receive my tickets?

After this time, your tickets can be collected directly at the box office of your respective venue one hour before the start of the performance.

Will I get a refund if a performance is canceled?
In the event of a performance cancellation, the customer will only be refunded the ticket price. After two-thirds of the planned duration, the performance is considered to have been completed. In case the performance is broken off earlier the refund is made proportionately. Further claims of the customer are excluded if the Salzburg Festival is not responsible for the reason for the cancellation of the event. The claim for the ticket refund must be stated within 3 months of the date of the cancelled performance. After that any claim expires.
Will I get a refund if there is a change in the cast of a performance?
Changes in the cast and programme as well as changes in the beginning times do not entitle the holder to return the tickets. If there are any changes, Salzburg Festival will do its utmost to inform ticket purchasers as far as is reasonably possible. However, it is your responsibility to inform your-self about any changes.
