Innsbruck festival of early music

Baroque music and Renaissance works – the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music is dedicated to musical masterpieces from the 16th and 17th centuries. Every summer music aficionados flock to the Capital of the Alps to listen to beautiful melodies and to watch dramatic stage performances. International singers, ensembles and orchestras perform the works of world-renowned composers. The concerts and operas take place in a variety of locations in and around Innsbruck, the most beautiful of which is the Spanish Hall in Ambras Castle with its elaborate wooden ceiling. Other venues include the Treibhaus, the Tyrolean State Theatre and the Hofburg Imperial Palace. An additional highlight, set to take place on 15th August, is Ambras Castle Festival when the castle grounds form the setting for a colourful Renaissance festival to delight children and adults alike. Admission to the Castle Festival is free.

Early Music in Innsbruck

During the 16th and 17th centuries Innsbruck was a magnet for great composers from all over the world. Thanks to its sumptuously splendid opera performances, the Capital of the Alps became a world centre for music lovers. Offering a unique treat for culture lovers, the Festival of Early Music has been serving as a reminder of those glory days since 1976. Top-class musicians delight audiences with a range of outstanding performances from laid-back lunchtime concerts in the Hofgarten to rousing sacred music recitals in Wilten Monastery.
