Arts & Culture

For travellers looking to enjoy art, music and theatre, Austria excels.

In SalzburgerLand, music lovers watch opera on its capital's Cathedral Square and follow in Mozart's footsteps. Architecture enthusiasts marvel at the Golden Roof in Innsbruck, a medieval construction standing in captivating juxtaposition to Zaha Hadid's nearby buildings. Curious minds learn about Vorarlberg's history through Baukultur in Bregenz, before heading into the mountains to experience some installation art. Admirers of fine art can visit the likes of Klimt, Schiele, Koller-Pinell and Hundertwasser in Vienna's grand museums, before seeing something new at the cutting edge open-air graffiti gallery in Linz's Mural Harbour.

All this - alongside Austria's palaces, castles, churches, festivals, handcrafts and traditions - would be impossible to detail in one page, which is why we've made the Austrian National Tourist Office's arts and culture press releases available for you below.
