Hangar-7, opened in August 2003, should be a fixed point of every visit to Salzburg. It was built from January 2001 until its opening on the grounds of Salzburg’s W. A. Mozart Airport.
The fully glazed steel structure was built by Red Bull’s owner Dietrich Mateschitz, originally with the purpose of creating a new accommodation for the Flying Bulls, Mateschitz’s private fleet.
However, the vision of making more out of it quickly developed to offer a fusion of art, cuisine, historical aviation and a dash of motorsport. Hangar-7 houses not only Mateschitz’s collection of historic aircraft, but also a bar, a lounge and two restaurants, including the “Ikarus”, which offers a unique gastronomic concept. Every month, another world-class chef cooks in Ikarus and thus determines the line of the restaurant. So there’s more than enough variety.
Hangar-7, which looks like a stylized wing from above, is more than just an event center. Through its unusual construction, it not only defines itself as a work of art, but also forms the framework for exhibitions and vernissages of artists from the most diverse directions and schools. The “HangART-7” programme is particularly worth mentioning here, which is intended to provide a forum and start-up aid for up-and-coming young artists in their creative development.
Following the hangar, two fully-glazed office towers were also built, which house, among other things, the “Ikarus”. Opposite the main complex is Hangar-8, which serves only functional purposes, i. e. maintenance work on aircraft or similar.
If you decide to visit us, you can choose from the newly renovated and stylish “Hotel zu Post” and “Villa Ceconi” accommodation as well as countless private hotels and guesthouses in and around the Mozart metropolis. From here, Hangar-7 can also be reached comfortably by public transport.
Salzburg once again shows itself from a side that knows how to fuse the modern with the historical. With free admission and opening hours from 9:00 o´clock to 22:00 o´clock there is really no reason to miss this delicacy for art and aviation lovers as well as gourmets alike. You will not be disappointed …
