Wolf-Dietrich Saal

The south-east-facing Wolf-Dietrich Saal is bathed in wonderfully warm and bright light during the daylight hours, and offers 166 sqm of floor space for up to 160 guests.

Daylight pours in through the expansive glass fronts, which provide a wonderful view of the historicist-style Salzburger Palais facades. The Wolf-Dietrich Saal is situated in the first floor of Salzburg Congress, and its size and appointment mean it is excellently suited to hosting workshops, presentations and seminars.

  • The 166 sqm of floor space can, if required, be divided into two smaller rooms.
  • Seamless shared flooring in the entire hall allows a smooth link-up with the exhibition foyer.

Wolf-Dietrich von Raitenau

Kein anderer hat das barocke Stadtbild Salzburgs so geprägt wie Fürsterzbischof Wolf-Dietrich von Raitenau (1559 – 1617): Seine Vision war es, Salzburg in ein prachtvolles „Rom des Nordens“ zu verwandeln.No other figure played a greater role in shaping the nature of Salzburg’s architecture in the baroque period than Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau (1559 – 1617). His vision was to transform Salzburg into a magnificent ‘Rome of the North’.

He planned his own utopian city in Salzburg with Vincenzo Scamozzi (1548 – 1616) to feature an imposing cathedral and large public squares. Scamozzi had been a student of the important Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. He drafted the plans for the cathedral, Residenzplatz square and the official residential palace of the archbishops. The implementation of these ideas took over 100 years to complete. Today, Residenzplatz, Domplatz cathedral, Mozartplatz, Kapitelplatz and Alter Markt squares are still some of the most beautiful places in the historical part of Salzburg. Wolf-Dietrich commissioned the building of Schloss Mirabell palace for his companion Salome Alt.

Wolf-Dietrich was ultimately laid to rest in Gabrielskapelle chapel in the Sebastian Cemetery, just a few minutes’ walk from the Salzburg Congress venue. This is considered to be one of the town’s most beautiful cemeteries, and is also the final resting place of Constanze Mozart and Paracelsus.
