International summer of music Bad Schallerbach

The renowned and top-class summer of music actually lasts for nine months – from April to December 2020 – and includes fantastic concerts and revues.

Concert season

The summer of music in Bad Schallerbach has been one of the most significant cultural events in Upper Austria for more than twenty years, and its diverse programme and artistic quality have turned it into a fixed part of the cultural landscape. As a "cultural brand", it is also an important cultural ambassador for the Upper Austrian region.

In addition to the outstanding classical musical offering, the programme for the 25th international summer of music in Bad Schallerbach also includes revues, satires and "Wienerlied" (a typical art of Viennese music) . From April 2020, visitors can again look forward to an immensely eclectic festival with well-known performers and idols.

The festival's intendant, Mr Peter Gillmayr, scored a special coup: The season opening will be performed by musical star Mark Seibert.
