City Round Trip by Boat & Best of Mozart Fortress Concert

Experience two of the TOP highlights of the city of Salzburg from beginning of 30th March to 02nd November!

Combine a Best of Mozart Fortress Concert with a popular river cruise on the Salzach and discover Salzburg and its surroundings from its most beautiful side.

The river cruise starts in the heart of the Old Town by the jetty „Anlegestelle Altstadt” (by the Marco Feingold foot bridge) and takes you to the south of the city against the backdrop of the impressive Old Town and past one of the most desirable villa areas of the town before the mighty "Tennen and Hagen" mountain range reveals itself to you, after which the ship embarks on the return journey.

Afterwards you will have the fortress concert in the most magnificent chambers of the Fortress Hohensalzburg. Enjoy this unique combination with a musical grand final high above the rooftops of the city.
