Past and Present of Salzburg Global Seminar
75 JAHRE SALZBURG GLOBAL SEMINAR
In the almost three centuries of its existence, Schloss Leopoldskron has had an eventful and unique history. It served as a private residence for an autocratic prince-archbishop; as a failed hunting lodge and spa; as a center of the European art and theater scene as well as a stage for the presentation of a fascist regime. It was a bombed-out, dilapidated shadow of its former glory, but since 1947 it has been a place of international dialogue, dabate, reconciliation and openness. For 75 years, Schloss Leopoldskron has been the anchor of the Salzburg Global Seminar. And this small but globally oriented non-profit organization is now embarking on another era, reweaving present and future with history in exciting and inspiring ways.
