Twice annually, all students at AIS-Salzburg are invited to join us on excursion to destinations around Europe. These excursions are planned each fall (October) and winter (February). The costs, other than lunch each day, is covered fully by tuition for all students.
Excursions provide an excellent opportunity to broaden your perspective and knowledge through travel while enjoying foreign destinations with your school friends and staff members. Organized and led by the members of the school’s resident-care staff, the trips include sightseeing of important sites including museums, galleries, and places of historical importance, as well as a modicum of free time and pleasurable activity. We also try to integrate physical activity into the various excursions although a great deal of walking will be necessary at any rate.
The Winter Excursion destination alternate annually between skiing and snowboarding in Tirol and Vienna, the beautiful capital city of Austria. In February 2020 we will be going to Vienna by train, staying near the city center on the Mariahilferstrasse and taking in many of the beautiful sights and sounds of this great city. The Winter Excursion is four days in length and will be from February 13th to 16th. Altogether, we will be staying three nights in Vienna and arriving back at the school in Salzburg on Sunday afternoon in time to rest up and prepare for classes on Monday.
Participation on the Winter Excursions is not mandatory but a great majority of the students, including day students, do participate. Parents are requested to inform the school administration as soon as possible as to whether their child will travel with us or not. This allows us to plan and provide for adequate accommodation and transport. Final decisions on the Winter Excursion will be requested before departure for the Winter Break in December.
