Choosing the Right City for You

Salzburg is the birthplace of Mozart and one of the most elegant cities in Europe. The city holds UNESCO World Heritage status in recognition of its unique character and architecture. Located north of the Alps, Salzburg’s lush meadows, lakes and mountains call you outdoors. Immerse yourself in the charm of this peaceful city and your day may include a horse-drawn sleigh ride to an alpine lodge, an afternoon hike through the mountains made famous by the ‘The Sound of Music’ or a coffee shop chat over a hot chocolate with native Austrians.

See How It Works

The AIFS Salzburg staff was phenomenal. They were there for us any time of the day or night. When we first stepped off the plane in Munich the Resident Director greeted us by name. This was nice because it made us already feel like we had someone when we weren’t even in Austria yet.

The academics offered by AIFS in Salzburg were wonderful. The classes I took included German, International Politics, and Contemporary Austrian Culture, which not only helped me further my academic understanding of the topics, but they also helped my cultural experiences in and around the areas that I traveled.

I absolutely loved my host family! I got to see a whole different side of the Austrian culture. My host brother taught me how to play an Austrian card game and my host mom was an outstanding cook, so I dined on some of the finest authentic Austrian foods. They all taught me new German words daily and it was a relief to have so many fluent Germans under the same roof whenever I had German homework! I am so blessed to have the chance to get to know them all

If you are thinking about studying abroad I encourage you to go to Salzburg. The Austrian people are welcoming, the culture celebrates life everyday and the views are breathtaking. I can honestly say Salzburg is a home away from home. This summer I already have the chance to go back and I am so looking forward to seeing my friends and visiting my favorite restaurants and cafés.
