We had the dinner and the concert. I would recommend splurging for the VIP dinner and concert seats. We had an incredibly beautiful evening with beautiful views of mountains and Salzburg below. The concert at the top of the castle capped off an enchanting evening....More

This concert was advertised as the best of Mozart yet only two of the five pieces of music were by Mozart. The musicians were talented but made no attempt to talk to the audience or tell you anything about the music they were playing. The...More

We really enjoyed his concert! It was a small audience which made it feel more intimate, and we were able to see the performers well. They were excellent! It was neat to be in the fortress for it and our view for dinner beforehand was...More

Perhaps it's better to skip the dinner of rubbery overcooked fish and haphazard service. You can see the rooms during the day. The sunset view from the restaurant was good, the concert okay, not great- the musicians have played this so many times that they...More

We didn't get the VIP "Dinner & Concert" ticket or pay a premium for the privilege of choosing a closer seat to the musician. Therefore we were assigned by the usher to the last row. But this is a small concert hall and the acoustics...More
