The medieval castle of Hohensalzburg has its own surprises. The cosy Burgschenke tavern was a welcome sight after the long tour of the fortress. Situated inside the outer wall of the fortress this cafe and restaurant has the best location in Salzburg. It has big...More

How often does one get to eat in an ancient fortress? Very unique local. Unfortunately, the poor service, unfriendly staff, poor quality food, cold and damp atmosphere did not win me over. Best to eat outside the fortress then here.

Gasthaus Burgschenke had a very unique atmosphere. The hall matched the looks of the castle. The place was crowded and understaffed. The waiters made us wait for long, however, it was not their fault either. Not a bad place but service was very slow.

The location is unique; inside the fortress of Salzburg. Limited quality of beer on tap. Food is not particularly nice, but not bad at all. Prices, considering the location, are good

Well, what can I say, I was very positively surprised. I expected a rather "touristy" place so always avoided it. But on one of my weekly walks up to the fortress after work I felt too hungry to make it back down to the city,...More
