Our Setting

Situated near the base of the majestic Untersberg, the American International School-Salzburg is just minutes away from the heart of Salzburg. With its spectacular architecture, beautiful mountainous scenery, and storybook Altstadt, Salzburg offers a cultural experience like no other. The birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the filming of The Sound of Music, and the beautiful Christkindlmarkt all help to combine in making Salzburg one of the most visited cities in the world. With our school set in Salzburg, our students have countless opportunities to gain worldly experience and the chance to explore the region through our rich program. With excursions around Europe, Alpine winter sports, and an extensive list of weekend activities, as well as numerous other events, students will be able to experience what millions of travelers come to see right in their own backyard.

It is, perhaps, unusual that a full-boarding program would be located in a city, but the site of our campus in the green suburbs of the city, just ten minutes from the center, as well as the secure and safe environs, give our students an extended campus to enjoy and explore outside of class hours.  Our students become acquainted with Salzburg in a way that makes it their second home and a place to return to again and again throughout their lives.
