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.

20.07.2019: Festival opening party
“When dreams are so strong and vivid that they can cast their spell on other people and seduce them into dreaming along, this leads to the magical reality I call theatre.” This statement by Max Reinhardt is nowhere more applicable than to the Festival Opening Party.

24.07. – 10.08.2019: Live in the park
Cool concerts, films, workshops, readings, specials and sports programs.
With a great program, especially for young people, “Live im Park” beckons again this year after its premiere in 2017.
We’re celebrating again in the city’s parks. From sports to lifestyle to music, there’s something for everyone.

until 31.08.2019: Salzburg Festival
In 2019, we hope to kindle your interest and curi­osity in myths from antiquity, which the Festival co­founder Hugo von Hofmannsthal saw as a ‘magic mirror’. Mythical tales from long ago still raise ever­relevant questions about human exist­ence, addres sing themes of war, flight, sacrifice, revenge, guilt and atonement.

until 11.08.2019: Salzburger Strassentheater “Alles Heilige: Eine weihnachtliche Sommerkomödie von Stephan Lack – World Premiere”
For the first time in its long history, the Salzburg Street Theatre is taking a play on its own,
or better on the cart, write.
The Viennese author Stephan Lack chooses an unusual comedy theme for “Alles Heilige”: the Salzburg Advent. The Advent business is tough. Melanie and Josef, head of an Advent choir, also know this. Son Lukas is also part of the family business. But the teenager finally wants to get away from the eternal song: in a casting show he not only seeks happiness, but also the answer to the question whether Josef really is his biological father – or yet hit god Frank Fahrich.
In any case, this year’s Advent game is not under a good star: Josef bursts into rehearsals with a surprising announcement, and the choir singers are literally stuck in the throat of the contemplation.
The summer Christmas comedy “All Saints” asks how values define us – and thereby reveals similarities with another, two thousand-year-old family history …

until 03.11.2019: Fly Me to the Moon. The Lunar Landing, 50 years later
“July 21, 2019, will bring the fiftieth anniversary of the first time a human set foot on the moon – an excellent occasion to examine the epoch-making event through the lens of art and take stock. Like few achievements before it, the moon landing changed humanity’s relationship with its environment. Seeing the Earth from space created unprecedented awareness of the fragility of our existence; the blue planet itself became an emblem of life and its vulnerability.”

until 17.11.2019: Sigalit Landau. Salt Years
“For the past fifteen years, the sculptor and video and installation artist Sigalit Landau (b. 1969) has repeatedly revisited the Dead Sea as a source of inspiration and laboratory. It has been the setting of the gestation of many of her works – in particular, various mundane objects that she “baptizes” by immersing them in the world’s saltiest sea for months until, covered by salt crystals, they are transformed into objects of mesmerizing, haunting beauty. Landau’s powerful and multifaceted works often probe questions of female identity and bodily experience, and explore themes such as the shadows cast by the Holocaust; the tense political situation in Israel; and complex issues of justice, structural violence, and the economic exploitation of nature. Combining a poetic aura with striking symbolism, her deeply moving creations reveal, with profound ambivalence, the transformative, sustaining, and healing properties of salt, as well as its destructive power.”
