Unteres Belvedere: Dalí - Freud. An Obsession
Salvador Dalí and Sigmund Freud: one man's art, another man's theories. The theories of Freud clearly fascinated Dalí, perhaps to the point of obsession – his greatest desire was to someday meet his idol. He made multiple unsuccessful attempts at contact, including a trip to Vienna in April 1937 that also failed to produce an introduction. Finally, at the urging of Austrian writer Stefan Zweig and the poet Edward James, Freud agreed to a meeting in London in July 1938. This comprehensive exhibition illustrates the obsession for the psychoanalytical in the work of the Surrealists, particularly as it is present in Dali's surrealist pictorial world.

Salzburg between tradition and modernity – 25 years Unesco World Cultural Heritage
Salzburg is world famous as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as the stage for the Salzburg Festival and as the location for the Sound of Music. If you take a closer look, you will discover perfect harmony of nature and architecture embedded in the wonderful panorama of the surrounding mountains and lakes. In 1997 Salzburg´s old town was placed on UNESCO’s list of World Cultural Heritage: in addition to the uniqueness of the old town and the prince-archbishop’s architecture of the city, Salzburg’s importance as a music metropolis and the birthplace of W.A. Mozart were decisive for the award. A walk through the baroque town on the river Salzach, which is celebrating 25 years of Unesco World Heritage this year, lets history breathe. Narrow streets, listed landmark buildings and magnificent squares – these are the things we know and love about Salzburg. But the city has more than just one face: extravagant architecture, spectacular works of art, contemporary design and trendy restaurants stand in sharp contrast to the baroque city’s nostalgic flair. The post tour offers an insight into today’s Salzburg, a city shaped by the course of time between tradition and modernity .

The Ötzi Trek - On the Trail of the Iceman
The new ASI long-distance hiking trail across the Alps.
On the trail of the Iceman, we hike between North Tyrol/Austria and South Tyrol/Italy across the Alps. The new ASI long-distance hiking trail from Landeck to Bolzano allows us to discover the route that people took well over 5000 years ago to cross the mighty main ridge of the Alps. Along the way were hunters who traded, or, like Ötzi, were on the run from persecution. The Ötzi Trek takes you past places and sites of the early human history, framed by an exciting story. Experience a rugged and fantastic mountain landscape, characterized by mystical marshes, lonely mountain passes, and eternal ice. The highlight of the trail is a visit to the site where Ötzi was found, at an altitude of over 3000m. Surrounded by a unique mountain landscape, here you will experience the history of the death of the Iceman, how he lived, and where he came from. Our post-tour to the ATB Fair will show you some selected routes of the Ötzi trek, the new ASI Signature Way. The ASI original journey leads us, in 8 days, from Landeck, Austria to Bolzano, South Tyrol, where the preserved mummy of the Iceman is located today.
