If we tried our hardest we could all be professional ballet dancers, opera superstars and musical greats right? If that sounds too much like hard work then we can at least marvel at others who get up at 5am daily to train, rehearse and practice. Welcome to Salzburg Culture Days, a fortnight performance extravaganza, which features some of the world's most talented show stoppers.

Held each October, the event takes place in some of Salzburg's most iconic venues including the Cathedral, the Mozarteum and the Marble Hall in Mirabell Palace. Showcasing the very best of European opera, ballet and music ensembles, the festival is run by the Salzburg Cultural Society. Established in 1972, the festival has hosted a range of national and international performers over the years and regularly features as one of Europe's top spots for cultural performance.

With a stellar line up, this event sells out fast so booking in advance (online) is a must. After all, planning a city break to Austria isn't quite as hard as becoming a professional ballet dancer. #justsaying
