Salzburg - cultural metropolis in the heart of Europe
City of artists and art lovers
Theatres, museums, galleries, concerts and festivals - Salzburg may be small at first glance, but it's actually a metropolis of cultural happenings. Max Reinhardt, co-founder of the world-renowned Salzburg-Festival, once said: "The whole city is a stage!" And he's been proven right with his self-fulfilling prophecy about Salzburg.
Max Reinhardt, Michael Haydn, Georg Trakl, Thomas Bernhard, Stefan Zweig, Hugo von Hofmannsthal - they all have left their marks on Salzburg. However, the most impressive track record comes from an artist who has given the city its nickname: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart's musical heritage lives on in Salzburg. Not only when the Mozart-Week in January is celebrated, but over the entire course of the year his works of musical genius seem to be ubiquitous. And Mozart should certainly be part of your conference's side event or social programme.
Let your delegates discover the city and ask them to take a photo in front of the cheerful yellow facade of Mozart's birthplace. It could be a memorable experience for a GPS city trophy and something to take home with them. But there are plenty of other possibilities for social programmes in the city of Salzburg or the SalzburgerLand countryside.
Culture and history - everywhere you look
In addition to Mozart's birthplace and residence, there are many more attractions in Salzburg
- Fortress Hohensalzburg
- Salzburg Residence
- Hellbrunn Palace and its trick fountains
- Salzburg Cathedral
- Salzburg Museum
- Museum of Modern Art Mönchsberg
- House of Nature
- Mirabell Palace and Mirabell Gardens
Salzburg already impresses from afar with its unique silhouette. Former prince archbishops loved pageantry and, thanks to their fine architectural tastes, the old town of Salzburg has been made into a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Amid historic buildings and narrow streets the city's vibrant cultural life takes place: world-famous events like the Salzburg Festival, the Salzburg Advent singing or jazz festivals attract art lovers from around the world to the city on the Salzach.
Great for event planners: Public events are frequently integrated into corporate events!
