400 Years of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg

1622 – 1962 – 2022

In 2022, the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (PLUS) will celebrate the 400th anniversary of its founding by Prince Archbishop Paris Lodron as well as the 60th anniversary of its reconstitution in 1962. This is reason enough to celebrate, to look together at its eventful history and to look to the future.
