It is a common misconception that the City of Mozart is exclusively a treasure trove of the highest echelons of culture. A very lively art scene calls Salzburg its home, giving space to new and alternative art forms. Why not find out for yourself what cultural riches Salzburg has to offer during a holiday in Austria: theatre, operas, concerts, readings and events hosted by the young art scene offer ever new artistic highlights to discover.
