I arrived up at the Fortress restaurant for a quick dinner before the Fortress Concert, without having booked. This was to be the finale of my solo long weekend in a long-awaited WONDERFUL musical-historical city. I had not booked for the dinner-concert combo (I had...More

Many people go to dinner in this more contemporary building that is part of the ramparts of the castle and then go to a concert inside. Time-wise, we couldn't make that early dinner time and then the concert, which I'm sure is lovely, so we...More

We (beloved wife and I) bought tickets for a concert and dinner. The place is located at the top of the hill, inside the castle. The food was good: we had gazpacho soup, spinach-stuffed chicken, and a fish. Dessert was very good too.

This restaurant's open-air patio on top of the Fortress affords superb views across Salzburg's sparsely built, green outer suburbs to the mountains beyond. Try and grab a table by the battlements and order, say, a glass of prosecco and the excellent sachertorte with vanilla ice...More

We only had drinks here before going to a concert in the fortress. This restaurant is in a superb spot and lives up to its name of panorama. You can see all the city from here

Frankly, the restaurant and the views from the restaurant are your best use of time at the fortress. The interior tour is the least interesting castle/fortress tour that I have ever taken. Apparently, there has not been any effort made to furnish it even do...More
