Contract was signed on May, 1st 1816
200 years ago, on May 1st in 1816 in the old Residence a contract was signed to officially declare Salzburg as part of Austria. To mark this special occasion the Salzburg Museum is hosting a special exhibition trilogy under the collective title "Bischof. Kaiser. Jedermann" (Bishop.Emperor.Everyman). This is open until the end of October displaying valuable items that are being shown in the city for the first time in 200 years. There is also a second exhibition divided into twelve thematic areas telling different stories and legends from the Mozart city. In the third exhibition photographers and video artists breathe new life into historical parts of the city.
