The situation is familiar: you’re in a strange town and you quickly have to find your way around in the unfamiliar surroundings. You may not understand the language, and reading the street signs is a problem. So how do you get your bearings when everything’s strange?
A third of Salzburg’s 150,000 residents are not originally from Austria. How do immigrants perceive the town and its culture, and how can this be combined with their own culture? What places come to have a special meaning? What makes Salzburg their new “home”? Against their various cultural backgrounds, four Salzburg residents – recent or long-standing – show us their town and tell of their experiences.
