Description

Get taken away on a journey back in time with a classical concert featuring Mozart's most renowned musical treasures. From the top of 11th-century Fortress Hohensalzburg, lose yourself in the spellbinding sounds of the symphony while gazing out over panoramic views of Salzburg.

Upon arrival at Fortress Hohensalzburg, you're whisked on the glass Fortress Railway, which offers spectacular sights of Baroque architecture, majestic mountains, and the lights of the city sparkling into the Salzach River. In less than a minute, you reach the top of the hill, where you make your way inside the magnificent Golden Hall. Originally built as staterooms for archbishops in the 15th century, the ornate space now serves as an acoustically brilliant concert venue for the internationally known Mozart Chamber Orchestra or Mozart Ensemble of Salzburg.

Once you settle into your seat, soak in the magical sounds of piano, cello, and violin as the orchestra delights you with impeccable renditions of Mozart classics, including “A Little Night Music,” as well as a few favourites by Bach and Strauss. Your evening concludes with a ride back down the Fortress Railway for views of the romantic city illuminated at night.

Excellent concert in a unique setting. The trip to the Fortress was special - spectacular views over the old city and beyond, and amazing surroundings inside. It all exceeded our expectations. Our only hint would be to take something to fan yourself with. It was a warm evening and, as with all these historic buildings, there's no air-conditioning.
