- The larger of Salzburg's two festival halls (with a capacity of over 2,000), the Großes Festspielhaus was designed by Clemens Holzmeister and opened by master conductor Herbert von Karajan in 1960. The festival hall was built to host the world-famous Salzburg Festival, but it is also used as a venue for many of Salzburg's other festivals like the Easter Festival, Whitsun Festival and Advent Concerts. The hall also hosts numerous operas and concerts outside of the festival season. Visit the festival website to find out more.
