Salzburg Fortress

For over 40 years the world famous Salzburg Fortress has hosted the world-​renowned Salzburg Fortress Con­certs. Mozart‘s genius is evi­dent in his birth­place — expe­ri­ence Mozart’s con­certs or a din­ner and Mozart Con­cert at the high­est level on the world famous fortress. Din­ner before the con­cert takes place at the Panorama Restau­rant in the Salzburg Fortress. When the weather con­di­tions are good enough, the din­ner is served instead, on the ter­race of the restau­rant with breath­tak­ing views of the city and coun­try­side. Dur­ing the con­cert you will hear the most pop­u­lar and well known works of WA Mozart and his con­tem­po­raries. A con­cert could not be more beau­ti­ful.
No mat­ter which sea­son you spend your hol­i­days in Salzburg, you will find clas­si­cal con­certs of the high­est qual­ity in the Salzburg Fortress.

Salzburg is associated by one and all in connection with dignified architecture and music. Both of these complement each other graciously within the setting of the Salzburg Fortress Concerts – which have been very well received for already thirty years. The Princes´ chambers with the Golden Hall at the world famous Fortress Hohensalzburg are the most splendid rooms in the city of Salzburg, where with the internationally reknown ensembles which perform here an unforgettable atmosphere is created. One which truly does justice to the masterpieces of European Chamber music.
