Salzburg, the center of the Pimcoverse
Pimcore is at home around the world. But there’s a reason why our mothership is moored in Austria. Firstly, because it’s an excellent business location. But there are about a zillion other reasons why we love Austria in general and Salzburg in particular.
We promise you that you will be stoked working in a place like Salzburg, too. What makes us so sure? Because it’s hands down one of the most beautiful places on earth – and probably in the whole universe.
Why we love Austria & especially Salzburg
New York, Tokyo, Sydney – been there, done that. The coolest space crew on the planet works from somewhere else: Salzburg. To some, it’s just a small dot on the map. For us, it’s where the magic happens.
When you think of Austria, the only things that come to mind are cows, Mozart and The Sound of Music? True, there’s that – but then there’s so much more! Basically, we’re living the work-life-balance dream here. Just imagine waking up to this every day …
Crystal-clear lakes, glaciers, forests, meadows – Austria has it all. The best thing about it: It doesn’t take a space flight to get there! Living in Salzburg, some of the country’s most stunning attractions are basically at your doorstep.
An after-work hike up Schober mountain, a canoe trip on the Salzach river or a morning swim in Lake Wallersee? Not a problem for a Pimconaut based in Salzburg!
If you’re into sports, you’ll wish your days had more than 24 hours. Skiing, hiking, swimming, mountain biking, … even your regular run around the block turns into a stunning outdoor experience here.
The way we see it, Salzburg has an unbeatable combination going for it. It takes only a few minutes to get from the city to its lush green surroundings and vice versa – giving you the best of both worlds. Because let’s be real: You can only do so much hiking before you need a little … party!
And that’s where Pimcore comes into play! We don’t mean to brag, but we love a good party, and our company events are legendary.
And if there’s no Pimcore party going on, you can always head to one of Salzburg’s party spots. The city center is full of funky bars, crazy clubs and cozy pubs where you can enjoy a nice after-work drink or two. Plus, there’s a huge choice of restaurants that are perfect for sampling your way through everything from Wiener Schnitzel to Kaiserschmarren.
If you’re a culture buff, you will feel like you have just stepped through the gates of paradise in Salzburg. The city is steeped in history, with famous historic buildings lining the way practically everywhere you go. There’s Salzburg Cathedral, the famous Fortress, Mozart’s birthplace ...
Talking about Mozart: Although locals are quite adamant that their city is about more than just Mozart, he is omnipresent in Salzburg. And that’s a good thing! After all, the city’s connection to one of the most famous musical geniuses of all time has made it a cultural hotspot.
The city’s arts and culture scene is thriving, with classical concerts, festivals and theater performances taking place practically every day. Classical music isn’t really your thing? Don’t worry, there are numerous concert venues, clubs and bars where you can catch everything from rock to jazz, punk or electronic music.
In our opinion, Salzburg has won the location lottery, being situated right in the heart of Europe. Within a few hours’ drive, you can be practically anywhere. The big city buzz of Vienna, the Oktoberfest in Munich, the sights of Graz or Innsbruck … all of them are just a day trip away.
And did you know that it only takes three hours to get to the glittering coast of the Mediterranean Sea from Salzburg? We dare say, your weekends will be busy …!
