The Festival Halls in Salzburg were a must for my husband, being a classically trained musician and avowed, "Sound of Music," fan. We are sure it must be a lovely experience to tour the buildings, and we are sure they must be very interesting, unfortunately our guide, despite announcing the tour would be in both German and English, spent just 5 minutes of the tour speaking English and the other 55 minutes speaking German. There appeared to be many jokes in his commentary, and when he did speak English, he was clearly very well informed, but we were bitterly disappointed. We did not get to see the backrooms as other visitors have reported and were left at the end to climb over a large chain barrier to exit the building. We are glad others have had a better experience, but ours was downright insulting and we have to review what we actually experienced.
