Each September, the city of Wolfsberg invites international choirs to the Austrian Mountain Song festival for a weekend of choral music in the midst of flowering alpine meadows and mighty mountains.

Wolfsberg is a well-known holiday region and offers numerous places of interest, quaint old villages, market towns, ancient churches and castles for choirs to visit.

This is a non-competitive festival where the highlight for many is the church service held on Klippitztorl Mountain, located 1700 m above sea level.

In addition to singing in beautiful surroundings , there is also plenty of opportunity for sightseeing in Wolfsburg and its surrounding areas. Here, all attending choirs join together to sing three songs.
