Salzburg - Convention City
Introducing the City of Salzburg
Salzburg has already acquired international fame as city of Mozart and the Salzburg Festival. But it might also interest you to know that Salzburg is capital to the province of the same name and that it is home to 150,000 inhabitants, making the fourth largest city in Austria.
Salzburg’s compact layout is one of the city‘s most attractive features. Vital transport hubs such as the train station and W. A. Mozart International Airport are all within easy reach, which help to make Salzburg the perfect event destination.
Salzburg – Historical Overview
Salzburg is known for being the city of Mozart. It sits on either side the Salzach River and in the Salzburg basin. The city was re founded as a bishopric on Roman ruins (Iuvavum).
Salzburg achieved immense wealth from mining and trading of salt. It became a bishopric residence of architectural splendour during the reigns of Wolf Dietrich and his successors.
The area around the Hellbrunn Palace in is proof of Salzburg’s extensive cultural history and the old part of the city is a UNESCO world cultural heritage site.
Conventions and Congress in Salzburg
Hosting more than 230 events a year, Salzburg Congress is among the most attractive conference centres. Salzburg has also developed into one of Austria’s leading convention cities over recent years.
Although Salzburg is a relatively new destination in the Congress tourism sector, the city has already achieved international status. The accessibility of the city, its manageable scale, the central location of the Congress venue and Salzburg city center’s comfort and security are reasons why Salzburg Congress has been completely won over by the event community.
