A city of many faces

International youth football tournament in Salzburg, Austria: Mozart Trophy
Participating countries: 
Austria Belgium Czech Republic Denmark France Germany Italy Poland Hungary Switzerland

Salzburg rings a bell for many people: some people think of Mozart and the incredible, historical city centre; sports fans of course think immediately of the Arena, a match location during the 2008 Euros, and the roaring Red Bull Formula 1 racing cars. You then also have the Mozart Trophy, which takes place during Pentecost. The tournament is played at a wonderful sports park, the "Salzachsee", a couple of kilometres from the famous city centre. The five star sports complex on the banks of the Salzach river boasts 7 pitches, various club houses and, as the name Salzachsee suggests, a beautiful recreational lake.

Organiser

Sport facillity

The Mozart Trophy will be played on the 7 pitches at the Salzachsee sports park. This top venue has 2 club houses with a restaurant and a leisure lake within walking distance. Participants can take advantage of the Salzachsee public beach for the whole day on Saturday. The sports park is only 3 kilometres from Salzburg city centre.

Salzburg

Just 3 kilometres from the sports grounds is Salzburg city centre. Here, you will find countless historic buildings, palaces and churches. A standout highlight is the city's symbol: the Hohensalzburg. This fortress stands on top of a mountain, providing wonderful views. With dimensions of 250 by 150 metres, it’s one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. Not really a history buff? Then go and shop to your heart's content in one of the lively shopping streets, such as Getreidegasse. If you need a break, there are plenty of lively restaurants and terraces to enjoy.

Red Bull Arena

Football fans definitely should not miss out on the Red Bull Salzburg home base. The Red Bull Arena was one of the competition locations during the 2008 European Championships. The stadium is located in close vicinity of the sports grounds. Participants in the Mozart Trophy can visit the stadium at a reduced rate on the day of arrival.

 

Salzburger Dult

Ever wanted to experience a true Austrian folk festival? Well, here’s your chance! The Salzburger Dult takes place at exactly the same time as the Mozart Trophy. It’s only five minutes from the Salzachsee by car, at the Trade Fair and Congress Centre. This traditional festival has been around since the Middle Ages. It’s a combination of a fun fair, market, food stalls, live music and folklore clubs. A great event for everyone. It’s going to be a festive Pentecost weekend!
