In summer Finkenstein Castle Arena overlooking Lake Faak draws crowds, as it hosts a wide range of cultural events every year. The historic arena seats just under 1,200 people with the mountains of the Karawanken Range behind. For very special concerts and cabaret in a simply stunning setting.
Who all has performed here? Opera stars such as Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and Agnes Baltsa or Monserrat Caballé with her powerful voice. Still fondly remembered: appearances by Austria’s music elite like Udo Jürgens, Wolfgang Ambros and Reinhard Fendrich. International artists such as Rebekka Bakken have also been guest stars.
Unrivalled: the unique, bright, lively atmosphere of this open-air venue. On balmy summer evenings fresh mountain air mingles with mild air rising up from the lake. The stars in the sky vie with those on stage, completely captivating the audience. Thoroughly recommended: simply sitting back and enjoying the inspirational moments.
No need to worry: if the weather report gives cause for concern, the events are held in the Music & Event Hall with good acoustics at the foot of the castle arena.
