The city of Salzburg received its Sixth Peace Pole.
This Peace Pole was erected by the European Institute for Community-based Conflict Resolution and the City of Salzburg.
It was part of a series of public dialogue interactions that began in 2011, “Looking beyond our own horizon-Living with cultural diversity in Saltzburg.”

The Peace Pole is located at the main train station in the picturesque town of Salzburg so that many tourists from all over the world can see it.
The new Peace Pole bears the universal peace message “May Peace Prevail On Earth” in Arabic, German, Hebrew and English.
In a cheerful and relaxed celebration, the Peace Pole was welcomed by representatives from the following sectors: Salzburg Town Hall, Integration Office of the Town of Salzburg, Moslem Community, Buddhist Center of Salzburg, Afro-Asian Institute and the Archdiocese of Salzburg, to include students from an elementary school and St. Joseph Vocational School for girls.
Another very prominent Peace Pole is planted in the Mirabell Palace Garden.
