This was the second time I saw a concert in the Fortress. The musicians were all so talented. We actually spoke to them in the Funicular on the way down. Very humble for all that talent. My only regret was that I wish it was...More
It was less than a minute ride on the cable car up to the fortress. You can see the whole of Salzburg up there and the view was stunning. The dinner was lovely, we had the VIP dinner so we got to sit by the...More
This was a highlight of my recent trip to Salzburg. While the food was just above-average, the restaurant view and service was outstanding. The concert that followed was full of the best Mozart pieces as well as classical music of others. The room for the...More
The whole experience was memorable and well worth it. The dinner was delicious and service was good. The concert was very entertaining covering a range of Mozart's music. The hall where the concert was held is truly breath taking and has amazing views of Salzburg....More
The Fortress concert in the lovely Golden Hall with the starry ceiling and richly carved portals was a spectacular evening setting with an outstanding concert of Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi, and Strauss. It was worth our flight across the ocean and a highlight of our trip...More
We arranged dinner and the concert
Dinner at the restaurant was average. Everything tasted shop bought. But was edible. The view from the Fortress was spectacular and the concert was amazing. Highly recommend the concert but skip the dinner
First time visitors to Salzburg should know that it is a struggle to find the cable car. There are no directions at all! The view in the restaurant was splendid, the sevice very friendly and quick, but the drinks were terribly expensive. Not all visitors...More
The man in front of us used a cane, and he was quite worn out/winded by the time he made it down all the steps after the concert. First you must go up steps outside the fortress. They do have a railing, but it’s at least 1.5... More
The man in front of us used a cane, and he was quite worn out/winded by the time he made it down all the steps after the concert. First you must go up steps outside the fortress. They do have a railing, but it’s at least 1.5 flights. Once inside, it’s almost another 2 flights of stairs to get to the concert area, and it’s through turrets. I think there was a railing. I’m not sure about the public transportation part. We walked from the main bus stop (but we are ages 28 & 30, so keep that in mind :) ). Once you get to the tram entrance, that will take you up to the fort (and the stairs are after that). The tram entrance is in the old town at the base of the fort and the ticket for it should be included with your concert ticket. I hope this helps!
