The friends-association ICARUS4all offers its members an excursion to the

Archive of the Archdiocese Salzburg (Austria)



Short info about the archive

The archive of the archdiocese Salzburg is located at the Kardinal-Schwarzberg-Haus since May 2006. It’s an “One-House-Solution”, which means that all functional areas are beneath the same roof: on three floors with a total area of 2.000 square metres you find 9.600 linear metres of archive material in five magazines. They date back to the 12th century. The first systematization took place after the unrest according to the peasants revolt in 1525. The collection of documents nowadays includes 3.600, and the graphics-, plans-, and photo-collection include more than 30.000 exhibits in total.

To the highlights rank the documents from the “Dommusikverein and Mozarteum“, matrices with records from W.A. Mozart or C. Dopper, some “Mozartianas” and records about the forced displacement of the protestants in 1731/1732. The modern archive fulfills several tasks, e.g an art inventory of church-owned art treasure, or the development of a people database about public individuals who had any relations to Salzburg from 1500 until now.

Infos about the excursion

The participants receive an exclusive guided-tour through the archive by director Thomas Mitterecker. He gives you a fascinating insight to the different areas and tells you all about the characteristics, working-methods and challenges.

Thereafter, the participants have the possibility to gain more and specific information about the usage of the archive.

After lunch in a cosy restaurant close to the archive, we organised for those who are also interested in local and contemporary history a guided-tour through the special exhibition “Anschluss, Krieg & Trümmer – Salzburg und sein Museum im Nationalsozialismus” at the “Neue Residenz” (Salzburg Museum).

The event-language is GERMAN. It is commonly organised by the archive of the archdiocese Salzburg and ICARUS4all.
