The big cultural event in Bregenz is the Bregenzer Festspiele, held mid-July to late August, with the main stage a huge floating platform on the lake. For information and tickets, contact the festival office. Tickets are also available at the Bregenz tourist office. In the event of rain, the concert performance is moved indoors to the massive Festival Hall and Congress Center adjacent to the floating stage (it can accommodate at least 1,800 of the 6,800 seats usually available for performances on the floating lake stage).
