Salzburg


The birth of the town Salzburg can be set in the year 696 when the missionary St. Rubert arrived and founded the Benedictine Monastery of St. Peters. The town merged into an independent church state, ruled by a sovereign, the Archbishop. He was not only the spiritual leader but possessed also worldly powers. Its organisation was Vatican-like and Salzburg was not called the “Rome of the North” by accident.

Located between the two mountains Kapuzinerberg and Mönchsberg and the River Salzach it is a picturesque city with small alleys, quaint colorful town homes, rich castles and palaces, neat gardens and a high density of churches and monasteries.

The Fortress of Hohensalzburg, a 900 year old building you cannot overlook, is considered to be the best-preserved Medieval Fortress throughout Europe.

St. Sebastian is the city’s most impressive church, built in the Gothic style, with a well-tended cemetery. The city of Salzburg lays proof of the wealth and power of the Archbishop and the Catholic Church and is a home to approximately 150.000 inhabitants today.

Salzburg is also a city of music. It was the home and birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the memorial on the Mozart place is honouring this city’s famous son. Nevertheless was Salzburg also a very popular stop for musicians from around the world, due the Archbishops’ traditional keenness for music. This state has not changed through the centuries. Today Salzburg is known for its annual Festival (Salzburger Festspiele), which offers a variety of operas, concerts and theatre plays, reaching from classical to contemporary styles. The city is also a very popular place to get a decent musical or theatrical education and so many students from around the world enrol to one of the different schools offered in Salzburg every year.
