A part of history
EDITION PRINCE ARCHBISHOP SALZBURG
It was the prince-archbishops who fashioned the City of Mozart
You can now take a part of Salzburg's history home with you!
The princely architects of Baroque Salzburg
The City of Salzburg is certainly worth a trip. A view shared by the 11 million tourists from around the world who visit this unique place every year. And there is plenty to draw them here ‒ Salzburg is where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born and spent his youth, Salzburg provided many of the backdrops to the 'Sound of Music' and then there is the remarkable architecture. The Old City in particular, Altstadt Salzburg, with its many churches, Italianate squares and narrow streets continues to fascinate visitors.
Hauptverantwortlich für das einzigartige Erscheinungsbild der Stadt sind die Fürst Erzbischöfe, die das Erzbistum über 1100 Jahre regierten. Sie waren die Baumeister und Gestalter des barocken Salzburg. Die Landesfürsten vereinten politisches Geschick mit Machtbewusstsein und waren die geistlichen und weltlichen Herrscher jener Zeit. Diese fünf Fürst Erzbischöfe prägten die Mozartstadt in ihrer Amtszeit besonders:
- Leonhard Keutschach: 1495–1510
- Wolf Dietrich (see picture): 1587–1612
- Marcus Sitticus: 1612–1619
- Paris Lodron: 1619–1653
- Hieronymus Colloredo: 1772–1803
