The 120 sqm Trakl Saal on the third floor at Salzburg Congress is ideally suited to the staging of smaller side events.
The development and enlargement of the Trakl Saal over the past few years has been driven by the requirements of clients, and the demands placed on organisers of large, international congresses. At Salzburg Congress, much like the Doppler Saal above it, the Trakl Saal is an absolute jewel. It offers a wonderful view of Mirabell garden, the Salzburg ‘Kurpark’ and the historic area of the town.
The 120 sqm room is mainly used during congresses for staging workshops, breakouts, seminars, meetings and lunch symposia.
The hall can accommodate a maximum of 100 delegates.
A small foyer at the front of the hall provides space for small-scale catering set-ups and break-time gatherings.
The Salzburger Georg Trakl (1887 – 1914) was one of Austria’s most extraordinarily talented poets and lyricists. His most significant poetry was written in his final four years prior to his suicide in Krakow.
He volunteered for military service in the First World War, but was never able to cope with the atrocities of war he witnessed. Georg Trakl made an apprenticeship at what is now the ‘Engel’ pharmacy on Linzergasse, just a few minutes’ walk away from Salzburg Congress. Early on he began to experiment with various drugs and narcotics. His poems are laced with a powerful sense of darkness, and yet themes such as death, decay, autumn and the passing of ages, are presented with immense beauty and symbolism. Trakls verses can be seen in various places around Salzburg, such as the Linzergasse, Mirabell garden and on Mönchsberg hill. The house at Waagplatz 1a, in which the poet was born, is now home to the ‘Traklhaus Gallery’.
