Salzburg is a major city in the Austrian neighborhood of Munich and Bavaria, with about 147.000 inhabitants and an expanse of ca. 65 square kilometers.
Although Salzburg may appear small at first sight, it offers a beautiful landscape and a lot of cultural highlights for every one. Music, literature, dance, exhibitions and traditional local events are firmly established and play an important role in everyday life. Especially music, with the city’s biggest son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is highly appreciated in the concert premises, churches and the opera. Not only great musicians, but also important authors, poets and singers like Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Georg Trakl or Maria von Trapp – to name only a few – have significantly influenced the city’s cultural history.
