About festival:

The Molzer organ, containing 4,500 pipes, offers the listener a rich, romantic sound. Since the St. Vitus Cathedral is used only for liturgical and touristic purposes, this festival is a unique opportunity to hear the full capacity of this instrument.

The festival consists of 4 festival evenings - each of them starting at 7pm. 

Important:

  • We recommend to arrive 40 minutes before the concert because of the security check within the Prague Castle area!
  • The concerts have no intermission. 
  • Dress code: casual / smart casual
