The Baroque city of Salzburg also has a surprisingly modern side: This includes exciting architectural highlights, sculptures in public spaces along with a wide variety of galleries. Beyond that, the performing arts scene is vibrant: Contemporary dance and new music are both highly regarded in Salzburg!
Rooted in history yet with its fingers squarely on the pulse of the times: This is the essence of Salzburg. This city of culture knows how to successfully bridge several centuries of musical styles and architectural eras. Extravagant artworks and contemporary design stand shoulder-to-shoulder, harmoniously for the most part, sometimes surprisingly, shaping the world-famous Baroque face of the Salzburg historic district.
The creative side of Salzburg is evident in many different forms. In the heart of this Baroque jewel, you will encounter installations and statues by acclaimed artists. The sculptures aren’t just surprising: Because, for the most part, they are essentially “walk-bys”, they couldn’t be easier for you to enjoy. Plus, they won’t cost you even one cent. This same openness to modern art is an attitude you will also come across in the fields of music and dance.
