The Winterfest since 2001 in the Volksgarten Salzburg
2001, Georg Daxner took the first step to implement his vision of a revival of the Salzburg Volksgarten as a meeting spot for people.
The idea of bringing a still unknown art form, the »Nouveau Cirque«, to Salzburg for the first time, was born slightly but also accompanied by numerous obstacles in its implementation. Courage, perseverance, numerous contacts, versatile support and the deepening love for the Circus have led to the winter festival now lasting 17 years.
Each artist needs his audience, so that he can develop into an artist. The Winterfest needs you, dear visitors, to continue and grow. Many of you are loyal companions, thanks to all of you. We would be very happy if you could also celebrate with us again next year, enjoy the innovations and once again be able to go home with joy and enrichment.
