Follow the trail of composer W.A. Mozart and consider the many ways in which his life was influenced by the city, as well as his own impact on the city and later areas of business. Nowhere else can a visitor get closer to the great composer as in Salzburg.
No one epitomises Salzburg’s international image quite like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This is the location not only of the house in which he was born and grew up, but also the world’s largest documentation centre on Mozart’s biography and works, his intellectual circle, and his historical legacy. Today he lends his name to one of the most renowned universities for music, the performing arts, the visual arts and research – the Mozarteum, shaped by prominent figures including Carl Orff and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Salzburg is a place where international talents meet, live together, study and leave their stamp on city life. Following Mozart’s footsteps, they help make Salzburg a breeding ground for artistic talent. Stars including Anna Netrebko and Lang Lang have all enjoyed their first successes in Salzburg. References to Mozart are ubiquitous, in every tourist programme, the local cuisine, and even fashion, quite apart from the countless artistic reinterpretations of his works.
Join us on an all-encompassing gourmet tour of Vienna. Discover some of Vienna’s most visionary and creative hosts and take a look with us behind the scenes at what they have to offer.
Vienna’s restaurants and coffee houses, markets and wine taverns create an atmosphere which is a unique combination of traditional and modern lifestyle. Modern Viennese cuisine and the contemporary Viennese coffee house, culinary festivals and the new face of Viennese wine create a paradise of pleasure.
Don’t forget that Vienna is regarded as one of the most “liveable cities in the world”. When asked why she is so passionate about living and working in Vienna, Lilli Hollein, Vienna Design Week director and THE hostess for design in Vienna, says “Vienna is smart in a particularly relaxed and democratic way. I like working here because I enjoy a joke, snide humour and talent in my professional counterpart too. Quite simply I am deeply in love with so many things about this city.” (Interview: www.a-list.at, 6.9.2016)
It would be all too easy to believe that the Viennese have nothing to do all day but eat, with such an astonishingly wide variety of food on offer in the Austrian capital, and eateries seemingly on every corner. Naturally, the starring role in Vienna’s culture of enjoyment is reserved for Viennese cuisine. Vienna is probably the only city in the world to have lent its name to a particular style of cooking. And: Vienna and wine are inseparable. Vienna is the only world capital to produce significant quantities of wine within the city limits.
Anyone visiting Vienna today will encounter a fascinating blend of tradition and innovation. Old has not been dispelled by new, and a young creative scene has injected avant-garde qualities into this venerable city of culture and the arts.
