Salzburg has more to offer - culture away from the festival


If you think that Salzburg only has plenty of culture to offer during the summer months and the festival season, then you are definitely mistaken.

Because modern art venues and alternative concert stages ensure that Salzburg is worth visiting throughout the year. Especially in terms of music concerts, the city is a real insider tip among connoisseurs. Because in the Rockhouse and the ARGE Kultur there is an exciting guest act almost every day. For people interested in art, particularly in photography, Salzburg offers two special locations, the Fotohof and the Leica-Galerie.

If you enjoy fine, progressive art, you should definitely visit the gallery Ropac. So let's face it, as you can see, Salzburg has so much more to offer than Mozart's birthplace and Co.;)
