Carinthian Summer Music Festival
 
 

The Carinthischer Sommer is an international festival with artists, ensembles, orchestras and visitors from all over the world. We stand for a peaceful and appreciative coexistence and condemn Russia's attack on Ukraine, which was ordered by Vladimir Putin and violates international law.

Carinthian Summer

Music Festival

Founded in the 11th century and magnificently decorated in the Baroque period, Ossiach Abbey lies on the shores of Lake Ossiach amidst the romantic mountain world of Carinthia, Austria’s southernmost province. It was here that the Carinthian Summer was founded in 1969, which has since become one of the most prestigious Austrian music festivals. Since 1972 Villach, the Carinthian city with the most Mediterranean character, has been the festival’s “second home”.
