CULTURAL PROGRAM

Excursion to Salzburg

The birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. With its spectacular buildings and charming cafes it is the perfect place to stroll around, go shopping, visit Mozart’s birthplace or just enjoy the excellent sweets for which Salzburg is famous. Among other sights we will visit Schloss Hellbrunn during our Salzburg excursion.

 

 

Excursion to St. Wolfgang

After a boat trip there will be a guided tour through the lovely village of St. Wolfgang, where students will have an opportunity to see the impressive Pacher Altar and may visit the well-known White Horse Inn.

 

 

Excursion to Ebensee

A guided tour through the Museum of Contemporary History and the Ebensee Concentration Camp Memorial in the village Ebensee will be organized for the students. The Memorial includes the only remnants that were not destroyed after the camp’s liberation. In one of the huge tunnels an exhibit provides a detailed description of the camp's history.

 

 

Chamber Concert

One evening a chamber concert by a string quartet of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra will take place.

 

 

Dance course

There will be a dance course once a week, at which students will have an opportunity to learn local and international folk dances and practice, of course, the cherished Viennese waltz. Traditionally, the dance course has been one of the highlights of the program.

 

 

Midsummer Night’s Ball

The summer program will close with a festive Candle Light Dinner followed by the Midsummer Night's ball where students are welcome to practice the dances learned in the dance course.

 

All events of the Cultural Program are free of charge.
