Earth Hour: City turns off lights for one hour on March 27th


Today, Saturday, March 27th, during the so-called “Earth Hour”, the lighting of many public buildings will be switched off for an hour – as a sign of the protection of our planet and as a clear demand for stronger climate protection.

SALZBURG. From 8.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. in Salzburg, the fortress, formative buildings such as the cathedral, the residence or the Mirabell Palace as well as the churches, fountains, monuments and cliffs of the old town remain in the dark.

Earth Hour is celebrated worldwide

“With our participation in the worldwide campaign, we are sending out a signal for climate protection, because striving for more and more and ever bigger exhausts our planet.
