With more than 300 concerts being performed every year, the world-renowned Salzburg Fortress Concerts take their place among the most magnificent series of chamber music concerts. The special atmosphere of the 900 year-old Fortress Hohensalzburg together with the excellent acoustics of the Golden Hall ensure that the concert-goer experiences far more than just a concert. From the concert hall and high above the city, you have an incomparable and unique view of the town of Salzburg and its surroundings. Watching a Fortress Concert makes for an unforgettable experience and a highlight of your stay in Salzburg.
