Festspielhaus Bregenz

Dietrich Untertrifaller Architects

The spectacular floating stage, with 7,000 seats and its view of the stage and the open horizon, is one of the landmarks of Vorarlberg. The event venue and congress centre, however, also has a big hall with 1,800 seats and various studios and Studio Theatre (Werkstattbühne) area. In 2006, the original building, dating from 1979, was renewed and expanded by architects Dietrich Untertrifaller. The Bregenz Festival House has been an architectural highlight on the shores of the lake for decades and copes elegantly with the impressive numbers of visitors.
