Culture, Activity, and History in Salzburg

Salzburg is split into 24 districts and three urban population areas with the historic center of the city listed as a UNESCO heritage site. The proximity to the Alps, coupled with a range of well-preserved historical architectural styles make for a beautiful backdrop to life in Austria.

Salzburg's strong economy and robust job market is an attractive prospect for expats. Main industries include mechanical, engineering, and electronics and the city is also a hub for automobile companies. Tourism is a significant contributor to Salzburg's economy, including associated industries, from hospitality to tour operators. Expats from outside the EU will need to satisfy a short list of conditions to obtain a work permit, including a skills assessment and language test.

As the birthplace of Mozart, there is an abundance of cultural experiences to enjoy, including numerous castles and palaces to explore, the memorable Marionette Theater and a range of museums and art galleries. The Red Bull Hangar, a striking building housing over 25 historical planes and helicopters as well as restaurants and bars, is a surprising addition to this historic center. And with bike tours, parasailing, numerous parks and nearby ski resorts, Salzburg also provides everything you need for an active Austrian lifestyle.
