Why come to Salzburg?
Honestly, why not? Salzburg has just been awarded the title
“Best in Travel 2020” by Lonely Planet - seems about
right to take the chance and visit such a beautiful city, doesn’t it?
Situated on the northern edge of the Alps, Salzburg is the
place to be winter! Also, it’s the capital city of
the federal state of Salzburg, which, with together with eight others,
forms the country Austria. It’s widely known for being ideal to go
skiing and do other activities in the snow. Of course, you will get to
experience outdoor activities in the picturesque landscape in the
surroundings of Salzburg!
With about 150.000 inhabitants, we have more than enough space to
accommodate a few more people. In summer, the Salzburg Festival (which
is famous worldwide for its operas and concerts with all the big
stars) attracts millions of tourists. Also, the film “The Sound of
Music” has played its part when it comes Salzburg’s fame. If that’s
still not enough for you, you might want to know that Salzburg is also
the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - our city is really
well-known in the musical world. Additionally, you can’t miss this
chance to get insider hints from real (or as we like to say in German:
“waschecht”) Salzburg people!
What’s going to await you? The final program is to be released in
January, but so far, we can tell you this: You definitely don’t want
to miss our Meetup! We are going to have incredibly interesting
workshops about the most exciting topics at the most beautiful
locations as well as a visit to one of the biggest companies in
Salzburg! And even more: We have a whole day reserved for fun
activities outside, for example skiing. Don’t worry, if you don’t want
to ski, there’ll be alternative activities, such as sledding. Of
course, there will still be sufficient time to get to know the other
participants, for example at the Pizza-get-together on the first
evening. And if pizza can’t convince you, we don’t know what can...
