Time and again, it is women who steer destinies and shape their environment, even if they are not seated at the levers of power. This is also the case in Salzburg!
At the end of the 1990s, the Women's Office of the City of Salzburg started the initiative "Traces of Women" and commissioned the Serbian artist and sculptor Sanja Serbin to design 17 bronze memorial plaques. They are attached to the birthplaces or homes of strong and impressive Salzburg women.
Would you like to know which woman asserted herself as the first female mint maker as early as the 17th century and even successfully managed the prince archbishop's mint?
Or which beautiful merchant's daughter caused a sensation as the woman at the side of the officially celibate Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau?
Did you know that a woman created the most frequently reproduced portrait of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart?
I'll tell you all about that on our walk. We'll also talk about a musical prodigy outside Mozart's circle of influence and a smoking enfant terrible who made a name for herself as an early women's rights activist.
Join me on a tour through the old town and to the places where Salzburg's memorable women left their mark!
