Fair-weather program

 

Kehlsteinhaus (The Eagle’s nest) 

Participation rate*: EUR 50,- / Person, registration required

The Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle’s Nest) on the Obersalzberg Mountain in Berchtesgaden is located at a height of 1820m above sea level and is a popular day-trip destination. Originally built by the Nazi Party as a symbol of power, decisions were made at the Eagle’s nest. The building stands perched over a sheer rock wall and a road was cut into the mountain through previously impassable terrain. Although most of the monuments from this era were damaged during World War 2, allied bombing did not damage the Eagle’s nest.

Today the Eagle’s nest remains in its original state and still offers a magnificent and unique view of the surrounding countryside.

*Please note that the Kehlsteinhaus-Tour is not included in the participation fee of the symposium.

Haus der Natur (House of Nature)

With more than 7000 m², Salzburg’s most popular museum presents fascinating nature: from beautiful underwater worlds in the aquarium to extra-terrestrial experiences in the outer space hall, from colossal dinosaurs from a bygone age to a journey into the human body. Another highlight: hands-on experiments in Austria’s most comprehensive science centre. We offer a special guided tour through the impressive exhibitions.

*Please note that the museum tickets are not included in the participation fee of the symposium.

 

Domquartier

The “Residenz” is not only the location of our gala dinner but also offers fascinating architecture and history. Fantastic paintings in the “Residenzgalerie”, a fabulous view into the Cathedral, the sacred treasures of the Cathedral Museum and revolving special exhibitions in the Northern Oratory await you. At the new Museum of St. Peter’s Abbey you will see the precious objects of the Benedictine monastery’s art collection. Fascinating details about the history and architecture complete this tour.

 *Please note that the museum tickets are not included in the participation fee of the symposium.

 

Depending on the weather forecast we will announce on Friday, May 15th 2020 which tour will be offered.
