Founded in Salzburg in 2002, their purpose is to promote tourist itineraries and to foster artistic, cultural, educational and research cooperation with a particular emphasis on the life and oeuvre of W. A. Mozart. The Association’s website,, is accessible to a broad audience, facilitating a dynamic and innovative acquaintance with the first major European musical traveller.
