Welcome!

My name is Antje Kurz. I am a state-certified tourist guide and look forward to showing you Salzburg and its beautiful surroundings.

Take a look around my page, click through hand-picked event tips and be inspired by what you can discover in Salzburg.

On my Facebook page I try – always up-to-date – to point out highlights from Salzburg and the surrounding area. The last entries of my fan page can be found at the end of the page and, of course, automatically when you like my page.

A particularly good insight into my work and the little secrets is offered by a small film (just below), which I created together with my daughter.

22nd – 26.05.2019: Salzburg Literature Festival
You have to read literature. You can hear. But you should occasionally see and experience it. The Salzburg Literature Festival invites you to do this every year on five days in May, all over the city: With authors who meet their audience, at readings from novels, conversations about non-fiction, cross-references with poetry and music. The Salzburg Literature Festival, a festival for literature and a fixed point in Salzburg’s cultural calendar.

24.05.2019: Long Night of Churches
“This year, the Long Night of Churches is taking place for the 15th time. It has already developed into a good tradition and we want to celebrate this anniversary with you …
The Long Night of Churches wants to show what church is all, and to stimulate the same way to engage with the (even internal church) »hot potato« that occupy and touch the people. This is especially true with a self-critical view inward: How and where can the Church, Christian and religious communities can help shape the great themes of the time?…
The program invites you to experience, participate and be addressed – silence, music, words, the ecclesiastical spaces … It may be tight there and there if the interest is too great – you don’t need registration or an entry ticket … ”

17. – 29.06.2019: Sommerszene Festival
International, contemporary, profiled, virulent, avant-garde, discursive, political: The annual festival summer scene is the artistic “heart” of SZENE Salzburg. For almost two weeks, important names and new discoveries from all over the world will be making guest appearances in the city with their current dance and plays.

24.07. – 10.08.2019: Live im Park

07. – 10.06.2019: Salzburger Festival – Witsun
„Voci celesti – Himmlische Stimmen“: For a while, I have been thinking about dedicating one of the Whitsun Festivals to the art of the great castrati. It is no coincidence that I can realize the idea now, when discussions about the abuse of the bodily integrity of artists have become so topical. (Cecilia Bartoli)

Until 11.06.2019: Tales from the Vienna Woods
Remember the good old times… But then, even they were not always as good as they seemed, which is what gives Horváth’s play, which dates from the late 1920s, a painful contemporary relevance. Things are not as they should be – neither out in the Wachau valley nor on a certain quiet street in Vienna’s 8th District, neither on the shores of the blue Danube nor at the wine tavern. Gambler Alfred has just broken up with tobacconist Valerie, who is considerably older than him, when he meets Marianne, whose father runs a toy store in the 8th Dicstrict. Marianne is newly engaged to Oskar the butcher, but she falls head over heels in love with Alfred and cuts all ties to her father and her fiancé. The couple’s happiness does not last: they soon run out of money and Alfred is fed up with taking care of their little child, so he sends him to live with his vicious relatives in the Wachau valley. Marianne’s social descent begins, while Oskar is still stubbornly waiting for her…
