Things definitely "heat up" during Classic:Summer in Bad Hofgastein. 2018 Highlight ist a unique open-air summer concert with star tenor Juan Diégo Florez. Aside from classical concerts at mountain huts and enjoyable dance evenings, you are also greeted by fantastic highlights at the Alpenarena.
Music is as much a part of summer in Bad Hofgastein as hiking is. That's why the organizers came up with the straightforward idea of combining the two of them. In the summer months, then, we offer concerts on the mountain, though in the valley, too, you'll also be able to listen to gentle melodies performed by the philharmonic orchestra Salzburg as well as traditional folk music played by local ensembles, all the while gazing out on Gastein's fascinating mountain world. Look forward to many unforgettable concerts at the Alpenarena in Bad Hofgastein.
