Studies Abroad: Salzburg I & II Planned Excursions
The following excursions have been included in past Salzburg Summer Session I & II programs and were led by program directors and/or professors. Exact excursion plans for the coming Summer 2011 program are not yet decided but will be posted soon.
Berchtesgaden : The Bavarian town closest to the Kehlstein, or Eagle’s Nest, provides access to this unique historical site. Built as a teahouse for Hitler, this high-altitude building is accessible only in summer.
Hallstatt: Nestled between mountains and a lake, Hallstatt is notable for its prehistoric salt mines. Visitors can explore the modern mine to learn more about the area and its remarkable past. Other interesting sites include the Charnel-House in the Catholic Parish Church.
Hohenwerfen Fortress: This well-preserved fortress has towered over the Salzach River since the 11th century. It has served as a defensive lookout position, a prison, a police training camp, and a movie set. The site includes a chapel, armory, medieval torture devices, the prince’s room, and falconry shows.
Munich : This charming Bavarian city features extensive art museums (the Alte and Neue Pinakothek museums and the Glyptothek), interesting architecture (including the Glockenspiel), as well as being home of the famous Oktoberfest. First founded in 1158, Munich became a stronghold for the Nazi party in the early 20th century. Today it is a center of the dynamic German economy.
Mauthausen: Operating as the main Nazi concentration camp in Austria between August 8, 1938 and May 5, 1945, Mauthausen is located on a rock quarry (Wiener Graben) in the countryside near Linz. Approximately 150,000 victims died in the camp before it was freed by American troops. Today the site includes a museum and various memorials, as well as the surviving buildings and quarry.
Bad Ischl: This Austrian town is located near Lake Wolfgangsee and a prominent ski area. One of its most interesting historical attractions is Kaiser Franz Josef’s hunting lodge, a summer palace which holds some of their surviving furniture and over 2,000 antler trophies. Also on Wolfgangsee is the nearby St. Gilgen, birthplace of Mozart’s mother.
