European Project of the Century ? Museum Walking Tour in Salzburg

After 200 years, a historic walkway built in the 17th century under Archbishop Guidobald Thun will open to the public. The circuit connects the buildings once constituting Salzburg?s religious and political centre of power under the rule of the archbishops.?Starting at the former archiepiscopal Residences in the heart of Salzburg?s Old City, it takes in St. Peter?s Church, the Cathedral, the art chambers and the Long Gallery at St. Peter?s Monastery, leads across the Wallis Wing (now part of Salzburg?s university), and finally, returns to the Residence.? Visitors can look forward to breathtaking panoramic views of the city and its surrounding city mountains and will gain fascinating insights into baroque living and entertaining. Opening in autumn 2013


The Walk of Modern Art

10 years after its initiation by the Salzburg Foundation, the Walk of Modern Art, a unique contemporary outdoor art project, has been completed. The circuit follows ten arts projects and takes visitors to Salzburg?s most beautiful places and hidden treasures. The sculptures by renowned international artists such as Anselm Kiefer, Markus L?pertz, James Turrell, Anthony Cragg and Christian Boltanski are freely accessible. And, while every artist takes a completely different approach, each sculpture is an interpretation of Salzburg and highlights the city?s identity as a cultural centre and World Heritage site. The Walk of Modern Art can be done as part of guided tours or explored on your own.


Vorarlberg museum in Bregenz

On 21 June 2013, the Vorarlberg Museum (former ?Vorarlberger Landesmuseum?) will be opening in Bregenz. The facade of the museum itself is already a highlight as it is made of 16,656 ?flowers?, using plastic bottles to create a flowery image.
