On the turn of the year, the world-renowned New Year´s Eve and New Year´s concerts on the world-famous fortress Hohensalzburg represent a true highlight. 
The numerous events on the turn of the year or the New Year´s concert offer something for all tastes. It is possible to book a concert either on its own or together with a special candlelight dinner. 
However, there is one thing which remains the same for everyone visiting the New Year´s Eve concert - the spirited start to the new year with the sound of waltzes and a glass of sparkling wine on the panoramic terrace of the fortress Hohensalzburg. 
Experience a first-class firework display high above the rooftops of the city. A truly exclusive location to welcome the the New Year. 
After the firework display, the fortress cable car brings you back down to the city.
