Schloss Arenberg - Cultural and Scientific Center

As the number of Salzburg Medical Seminars held every year increased, the board began searching for a larger venue which could accommodate seminars, new programs and foundation offices. In August 2001, the Salzburg Stiftung purchased Schloss Arenberg, a 3,000 sqm, 19th century palace within walking distance of Salzburg city center.


In May 2005, renovation was completed and Schloss Arenberg began operating as a state-of-the-art conference center for the Open Medical Institute's (OMI) Salzburg Medical Seminars and as headquarters for the Salzburg Stiftung of the AAF.

Home to the American Austrian Foundation’s Salzburg Medical Seminars program, Schloss Arenberg is a conference center where physicians from NewYork Presbyterian Hospital, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Hospital for Special Surgery, Duke University Medical Center, The Cleveland Clinics and Methodist Hospital serve as faculty members to teach physicians from countries in transition the latest advances in all the medical specialities. 

During the summer months Schloss Arenberg is home to cultural programs linked to the Salzburg Music Festival and the Vienna Philharmonic, including children’s music camps.

In April 2009, a fire and the ensuing water damage completely destroyed the building. But in less than one year we were able to rebuild and restore Schloss Arenberg. >>Gallery

The newly renovated Schloss has wireless lan throughout the building and air conditioning in all the lecture halls. There is a new lounge on the top floor for fellows to congregate, known as the “Armenia Lounge”, thanks to the funds raised in Armenia at a benefit concert organized by Dr. Bella Grigorian.
