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.

04.+05.+19.+28.11., 03.+29.+30.12.2021: Der Tatortreiniger
Wenn alle anderen weg sind, der Mörder, die Kriminalbeamten, die Spurensicherung, wenn nur noch die Leiche da ist, schlägt seine Stunde! Dann kommt »Schotty«. Dann wird das entfernt, was keiner mehr braucht und was keiner sehen will. Die Reste der Verbrechen. Seien die Orte auch noch so grauenvoll, »Schotty« schreckt nichts. Es ist eine Wissenschaft. Mit Bürsten, Schrubbern, Seife, Schwämmen und chemischen Substanzen betritt er die Tatorte und putzt. Vor allem braucht er aber Empathie und Geistesgegenwärtigkeit. Denn »Schotty« ist nie allein. Er begegnet völlig fremden Menschen. Hinterbliebenen oder Bekannten der Opfer, Leuten, die zufällig vorbeikommen oder den Geistern der Ermordeten. Alle befinden sich in emotionalen Ausnahmezuständen. Sie wollen reden, alles mal grundsätzlich klären. »Schotty« wird zur alltagsphilosophischen Projektionsfläche, muss erläutern, trösten und die Dinge wieder in Ordnung bringen. Am Anfang stand ein Experiment. Aber »Der Tatortreiniger« wurde zu einem Kulthit. 2012 bereits mit dem Grimme-Preis gekrönt, stieg die Nachfrage des immer zahlreicher werdenden begeisterten Publikums rasant.

Permanent exhibition: MUSEUM ART OF THE LOST GENERATION
What is the lost Generation? Who were they?
It was the art historian Rainer Zimmermann who coined the term “missing” or “lost” generation in 1980. He sees here a parallel to the concept of the “lost generation” of which Hannah Arendt and Gertrude Stein wrote in connection with the American writers of the 1920s. Zimmermann was referring to artists who were born between 1880 and 1915. Artists who attained a certain fame and recognition in the early 20thcentury, and who came from all corners of the Weimar Republic and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. They were artists whom the Nazi regime refused to accept, denouncing them instead as “degenerate” and ostracising them, either because of their background, their faith, their political attitudes or one of many other reasons. Their works were destroyed, sold abroad, or – if they were lucky – hidden away and preserved. Their names are largely unknown today, as are their works. Their names are largely unknown today, as are their works. This collection is now bringing them back to life.
The collection comprises some 300 works, most of them oil paintings.
The elegant exhibition rooms let us peek into the extended living room of the collector Prof. Dr. Heinz Böhme. It exudes a cosy ambiance that invites one to linger. There are comfortable lounge areas, tables and stools that offer one the opportunity to sit and study the extensive literature around one.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday 10:00 – 17:00 (extended opening hours during the Festivals).

until 17.04.2022: CITY OF DREAMS. SALZBURG AROUND 1920
Salzburg is a city like nowhere else. This has to do with its history and culture. Also with its architecture and the city’s overall setting. Salzburg is not only a powerful magnet for tourists today, but also before and during the 1920s, its magic appeal attracted many people to the city. Some of them moved from the big cities to settle in this small but picturesque city on the Salzach river. Others came as visitors and became faithful friends of the city. Accelerated by the Salzburg Festival, tourism constantly increased, and Salzburg became an internationally famous brand. What impression did the city make on its visitors at the time, and what did people actually see when they looked down on Salzburg from the Gaisberg or Mönchsberg? What views and insights do the artistic documents of this time give us? What was new and upcoming? What was forgotten? The exhibition gathers together picturesque views, visions drawn on paper and historical photographs to show an age in which much was on the move. Join us on a trip to the Salzburg of the 1920s!

08.04. – 04.09.2022: Café Salzburg. Orte. Menschen. Geschichten.
Diese Ausstellung widmet sich dem öffentlichen und privaten Kaffeekonsum. Dabei stehen die spezifischen Entwicklungen in Salzburg im Zentrum. Salzburgs Cafés als soziale Orte haben sich in den letzten Jahrhunderten immer wieder gewandelt und an die Bedürfnisse angepasst. Ein Café war selten allein Kaffeehaus, sondern auch Treffpunkt für verschiedenste soziale Gruppen und abends oft Tanz- oder Weinlokal. So wie sich das Lokal änderte, wandelten sich die Trinksitten und mit ihnen das verwendete Geschirr und die Zubereitungsformen des Kaffees.
