Overall a good experience. Boat cruise was great. A little confusing on getting to dinner, cable car ride was included but didn’t show of the ticket.

This was fine.

The funicular ride is really neat, the fortress is lovely, the restaurant is lovely, the concert was very well performed. It was a really nice experience.

But the food was only fine. We didn’t upgrade to the VIP dinner, but I don’t think that would have made a difference in the quality of the food, just in the menu. We got beef broth, chicken, and Mozart cake. I have zero complaints, but I think I could have gotten better food for cheaper elsewhere. (You can’t beat the view, though!)

The concert was very, very good. I am someone who appreciates but doesn’t always enjoy classical music, and it was very enjoyable. They played two pieces, then a break, then a few more pieces. They were excellent musicians.

But the whole thing felt very “set up for tourists”, if that makes sense. I know different people travel differently, and some people really like that kind of thing, but I don’t particularly. I’d rather go to a restaurant that doesn’t cater to tourists and get better food, and then see Mozart performed at the local symphony or at a church or something. If we go back to Salzburg, we will probably just do that.

The fortress is a must see while in Salzburg. We booked the dinner and concert evening. The dinner was good but the concert was great! An intimate evening listening to Mozart in a historic setting.

We spent 8 days in Austria and decided that this dinner/concert was among our top three favorite things we did. We chose to purchase the VIP Gold package that included alcohol and felt it was a good value. The dinner was quite good, the alcohol a nice compliment and the setting was just gorgeous. We were fine with eating inside as the views out the window were really special. The concert location was magical (in a room that you had to pay extra to visit if touring the Fortress) and the musicians were very talented with a great program. Not touristy at all.

I would only caution people to be mindful of your time. The waitstaff didn’t tell us that we were running late until the concert had almost started. So we ended up sprinting in our nice clothes to make it up multiple staircases in time for the concert. Minor glitch but worth mentioning

This was the perfect way to end our time in Salzburg. The food was good, but you’re obviously paying for the view, which is unrivaled. The Salzburger dessert was a perfect finale. The servers at the restaurant were clearly experiencing understaffing (this is common for restaurants everywhere nowadays), but they were hustling and gracious. The musicians were top quality. We did the VIP experience. I highly recommend it.

The overall experience is wonderful, the sunset views from the fortress are amazing, the dinner was excellent(well worth the additional charge for the”VIP” dinner) and it was fantastic to listen to chamber music at the top of a castle in a room built in the 1600s. The boat ride is not much really, very professional and relaxing but in hindsight would have opted just for the dinner concert and arrived at the fortress early to tour the castle. It’s a great and well run tour.
