Experiencing the Magic of the Verbier Festival

The Verbier Festival is an annual international music festival that celebrates classical music and aims to connect great musicians and young aspiring artists from around the world. Located in Verbier, a beautiful mountain resort in the Swiss Alps, the festival is renowned for its stunning setting, offering views and an ambience that enhances the musical experience.


Verbier is in the canton of Valais, Switzerland, and is well-known for its skiing areas during the winter. In the summer, however, it transforms, not only in temperature and environment but for the Verbier Festival. The village’s natural beauty, characterised by alpine landscapes, makes it a perfect location for a festival that mixes music within a natural environment. The main concert hall, Salle des Combins, is a venue that is set up for this festival each year. It can hold up to 1,500 people and has incredible views of the snow-capped mountain ranges in the background.

What It Is

The Verbier Festival is not just a series of concerts; it also has masterclasses, workshops, and rehearsals open to the public, giving visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the world of classical music.
