Overview

Vienna’s magnificent palaces and Salzburg’s musical tradition make them fascinating cities for a school trip or educational visit. Great examples of Baroque, Gothic and contemporary architecture are all there to be discovered. Countless classical composers and first class art collections have all contributed to the rich artistic heritage of these two cities including Salzburg’s most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Museum of Fine Arts, built between 1872 – 1891, ranks among the richest and most important art collections in the world. At the core of the museum’s unique Picture Gallery are paintings by Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Raphael, Titian and Velazquez, as well as the most comprehensive collection of Bruegel’s paintings in the world. The Palace is one of the most exquisite Baroque structures in the world, consisting of two palaces (Upper and Lower Belvedere). The Upper Belvedere, shows Austrian and international art from the last two centuries: It contains prominent works of the French impressionists, and the most important paintings of the Viennese Biedermeier era.
