About the Event

The 'Advent Concerts' at the Fortress Salzburg are widely regarded as one of the most important chamber music series in the world. Highly qualified musicians and internationally recognised soloists offer excellent performances of works by W. A. Mozart.

The concert series offers not only the highest quality musical experience, but the special atmosphere of the 900 year old Festung Hohensalzburg as well.  It is the hallmark of the 'Mozart City' of Salzburg and the view of the city and surrounding countryside from the concert hall is beyond compare.

    Mar 2020

    Posto incantevole, il trio orchestrale ottimo veramente, servizio medio; noi abbiamo preso due biglietti più cari per stare piÙ avanti…in realtà ci hanno dato due posti in terza fila pur essendo arrivati un’ora prima! In prima fila c’erano almeno 5 posti liberi e 4 in seconda fila ed hanno fatto sedere dei turisti giapponesi che avevano preso dei biglietti più economici…non ho capito bene la dinamica dell’assegnazione dei posti!

    Замечательный концерт, и репертуар и музыканты полностью соответствовали настроению рождественского вечера! Нашей семье очень понравилось! И зал церкви небольшой и очень уютный для концерта, в отличии от той же Карлкирсхе, где огромное помещение и слышно не везде одинаково хорошо! Рекомендую!

  • Carmen H, España

    Jan 2017

    El concierto y la cena fueron satisfactorios. La bajada a la plaza y posterior subida a la terraza de la fortaleza para ver los fuegos artificiales también. Sin embargo la organización del inicio del evento no se puede considerar satisfactoria ya que la información al respecto era muy escasa y además en el concierto nadie sabía muy bien qué hacer con el e‐ticket. La información proporcionada en el e‐ticket sobre horarios y procedimientos resultó incorrecta.
