Are you interested in events and festivals in Burgenland? Summer is festival time Burgenland. We were able to experience this ourselves in August on our Kultour Journey through the Burgenland, which brought us closer to the borders of the country.

Events and festivals in Burgenland at Tabor Castle

Our journey began in Neuhaus am Klausenbach. There is Castle Tabor. Mercenary leader Ulrich Pessnitzer from Styria built this in 1469. Since 1607 it has belonged to the Batthyány noble family from Hungary. It was restored in 2002 and 2003. Today it serves as a backdrop for opera performances at the Jennersdorf Summer Festival. One of the festivals in Burgenland.

There are opera or operetta performances

We had the pleasure of watching a premiere at Tabor Castle at the festival in Burgenland. Imagine the summer evenings are warm and the stars twinkle above us. We sit together in the open air at Tabor Castle.

In 2024, the operetta “Im weissen Rössl” by Ralph Benatzky will be performed there. The castle provides the perfect backdrop for this charming story, which is set in the picturesque Burgenland countryside. Think of the combination of music, humor and romance that echoes through the historic walls.

Performances will take place on August 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th, 2024. Each performance begins at 20:00 p.m. and ends at 23:00 p.m.

The backdrop at the festival in Burgenland on the lake stage in Mörbisch is impressive. Behind the backdrop there are also views of Lake Neusiedl and the towns on its banks.

Festivals in Burgenland on the Mörbisch lake stage

This summer, from July 11th to August 17th, 2024, you can experience something special at the Mörbisch Lake Festival. “My Fair Lady – The Musical” is being performed, and not just as we know it. Imagine the stage transforming into London in 2020.

You go to a city full of life, right on the lake. Here Professor Henry Higgins meets the young Eliza Doolittle. She sells roses to make a living and doesn't speak the way polite society expects her to. Higgins, who meets her by chance, sees more in her. He resolves to improve her English and introduce her to society.

It is a story of transformation and challenge. The only way you'll find out whether Higgins achieves his goal is to be there. Think of the evenings by the lake when the sun sets and the stage lights come on. You could pack some snacks and get there early to get good seats.

A festival in Burgenland is definitely an event that will be remembered.
