For many people, the beggars sitting in various places in the town are part of everyday life. But where do they come from, where do they sleep, how do they organise themselves? In this Town Walk, Alina Kugler will offer an insight into the Rroma community in Salzburg and shed a little light in the darkness.

The 2019 Exploring Salzburg walks will take groups to places that reflect global life in the town. Even though it is temporarily filled with international visitors during the summer months, Salzburg has international communities and institutions which operate year-round, devoted to global topics and/or bringing visitors to Salzburg from around the world.
Ever since it was founded in 1953, the Summer Academy has been internationally oriented. Initially, it was only the “western” art world that participated, but over the years it has increasingly seen teachers and students coming from all over the world. So this year we are seeking out places, communities and institutions in the town where lifestyle, ideas and activities are globally oriented.
