90 Years of the Salzburg Festival

There is no doubt that the Salzburg Festival is one of the most important cultural events in Austria, its excellent reputation having had a decisive influence on the image of our country. On the occasion of the Festival’s 90th anniversary, a special commemorative stamp is being released showing the signet designed in 1928 by Poldi Wojtek and still in use today.

The birth of the Salzburg Festival was marked by Hugo von Hoffmannsthal’s famous drama “Everyman”.
