Bregenz Festival

Bregenz Festival

July-August
Lake Constance in Bregenz, Austria, provides the setting for the Bregenz Festival, which features opera, symphonic and chamber music, theater, and ballet in a variety of indoor and outdoor venues, including the Festival House on the banks of the lake and a floating stage on the lake itself. The summer festival was established in 1946 to culturally refresh a war-weary public.
