Measures for your safe Winterfest visit


Dear visitors,

Your health and the health of all those involved in the Winterfest is very important to us. There is a lot going on at the moment and the measures are always subject to change. We make every effort to keep you informed about the latest developments on our website and via our social media channels.

We are guided by the requirements of the federal government and the province of Salzburg and are in close contact with the authorities. From today’s perspective (as of 12 Nov, 2021), the following measures are mandatory for your safe visit:

  • 2-G (recovered, vaccinated): will be checked at the entrance to the venue (Volksgarten and SZENE Salzburg). Please remember to bring a proof of identity.
  • Children under the age of 12 are exempt from proof requirement. For children between 12-15 years of age, the Ninja Pass (the test proof that is used at schools) currently applies. For children 15 years and older a 2-G proof is required.
  • Wearing an FFP2 mask is mandatory in all indoor areas of the festival, in the Volksgarten tent as well as at the SZENE Salzburg. For kids aged 6 to 12, a regular face mask (“MNS”) is sufficient.
  • No testing station on site – please use the testing services offered by the city of Salzburg.
  • Admission for symptom-free people only
  • Tickets: all tickets are personalised, all seats are allocated and numbered
  • You will find disinfection dispensers at the event site. We ask you to wash or disinfect your hands regularly.
  • Contact tracing: data collection will happen with every ticket purchase as well as on site for every visitor.
  • The open-air CIRCUS takes place outdoors without seats; registration in advance and booking of free numbered tickets is required. A 2 G check will also be carried out on site.

We kindly ask you to arrive early, as waiting times due to the 2-G checks might occur occasionally. Any postponements or cancellations will be communicated via the website (and if possible by email to the buyers).

We look forward to seeing you and having a wonderful Winterfest 2021!
