Faschingsdienstag

13 Feb 2018
Salzburg, Austria

Get ready to party all day and all night at this citywide, party-centric extravaganza.

  • When? 13th February 2018
  • Where? Various venues, Salzburg
  • Price: Varies per event, but tickets always sell out fast.

Don your favourite wacky party attire and get tickets to one of Salzburg's Faschingsdienstag (Mardi Gras) events - this is fancy dress extravaganza that puts all others to shame. Across the city, clubs, bars and drinking spots come alive with a calendar of all-night blow outs. Just remember to buy make-up remover before you head to the dance floor – face paint is never a good look in Monday’s morning meeting.

This ever popular celebration has plenty on offer for day bunnies and night owls alike with everything from star-studded ice skating afternoons to DJ raves at one of Salzburg's clubs (most carry on until the early hours). Fancy dress is the common theme with locals donning clown outfits, face paint and plenty of glitter for good measure. There are also street parades and a children’s carnival to keep the little ones happy.

Tickets for the events (especially the club nights) are hot property so you'll need to book in advance if you're planning on attending. You can also buy multi entry tickets so the only thing you'll have to worry about is where you stashed your favourite get-up. We'll see you on the dance floor.

  • Get there: The city centre is easy to navigate on foot, but you could also take the bus or train for further out venues.
  • Stay: Base yourself near the city centre so you can get around easily.

*We do our very best to verify the dates of our events but please check with the official event provider before booking your flights. We would hate for you to be disappointed!
