The Austrian town of Salzburg has always been a winter holiday favourite, however this January, style-conscious skiers are being lured away from the slopes with savings on designer goods and the sounds of Mozart.
McArtherGlen’s Designer Outlet Salzburgoffers more than 200 top international designer labels, such as Valentino, Escarda and Hugo Boss, with year-round savings of 30-70%. Avid skiers and shopaholics alike can make tracks from the mountains of nearby ski resorts, including Zell am See, Saalbach and Obertauern, to indulge in some après-ski retail therapy at the centre, just ten minutes’ drive from Salzburg. Skiers and boarders can even update their look with outdoor brands such as Columbia and Northland Professional located at the Designer Outlet.
If you are more of a culture buff than a sports fanatic, Salzburg, birthplace of legendary composer Mozart, hosts a winter classical music festival each January around his birthday.
From 23 January to 3 February 2013 Mozart Week will offer opera productions as well as orchestral, chamber music and soloist concerts, with world-renowned Mozart performers and conductors. Concerts are held in the Large Hall of the Mozarteum, at the House for Mozart, in the Large Festival Hall and at the Mozarteum University’s Solitär.
If a good old-fashioned shopping spree is what you are after, make a day of it and take the family, with the children’s play area at Designer Outlet Salzburg sure to keep the little ones entertained while you hunt for bargains.
