Angela Merkel gets free tickets for lifeNews
The Austrian Government has told Angela Merkel she can see anything she wants to for free at the Salzburg Festival as long as she lives.
The gift was made by the disgraced former Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and has been endorsed by his successor.
His department says: ‘The Federal Chancellery will send a letter to the retired Federal Chancellor every year asking her about her wishes regarding possible festival performances for her and her husband. In addition, the Federal Chancellery will take care of booking tickets for the performances selected by Ms. Merkel (in cooperation with the Festival).’
Chancellor Merkel and her husband have been regular visitors to the Salzburg Festival down the years.
