While you might consider Vienna and Salzburg Austria’s musical capitals, Innsbruck has played its own role in Europe’s cultural history. During the Renaissance and Baroque, Innsbruck proudly claimed its spot as a centre of music and high art. Today, the city still celebrates its rich tradition by hosting the Festival of Early Music, the oldest one of its kind. The prestigious event attracts the very best of the Early Music scene and features several original-instrument ensembles, backstage events and lunchtime concerts where you can enjoy a delicious meal while listening. If you want to immerse yourself in an authentic celebration of Early Music, the festival of Innsbruck is as good as it gets.
