April – October
Backstage at the Marionette Theatre (puppet play) in Salzburg
Marionette Theatre Salzburg (puppet play)
The Salzburg Marionette Theatre employs 10 puppeteers, trained in a wide variety of trades and professions. Qualities common to all of them are musicality, manual skill, and the ability to emphathise with the various characters in order to bring alive the marionettes on the stage. The Salzburg Marionette Theatre has evolved its own technique, which is used as a model by many marionette theatres worldwide. The puppeteers' training, which takes place exclusively in the theatre itself, demands just as much time and perseverance as learning to play a musical instrument.
Castle Hellbrunn & trick fountains (Wasserspiele)
Like a jewel of its own, the castle's fortress is surrounded by a wall.
Behind it you will find 60 hectares to relax, to breathe deeply, to enjoy and to marvel. At the trick fountains you never know, what you have to expect. BUT of course it will be fun! Experience an unique culture jewel, which you will find nowhere else.
High above the Salzach valley, between the Tennen and Hagen mountain ranges,
sits the 900 year old castle Hohen Werfen which leads back until the 11th century.
Through a shadily path – approx. 15 walking minutes – or by rail way you will arrive at the castle’s entry. A personal guided tour with a dressed up tour guide (from the medevial times) will explain you the interesting story of this fortress. One of the highlights is the falc show with ist falconry.
