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.

HOW TO GET THERE:
Fortress Hohensalzburg is located in the pedestrian zone in the heart of the Old Town. Direct access to the fortress via car is not possible!
The fortress can be reached within about 15 minutes on foot from most of the city’s hotels, we therefore generally advise city hotel guests not to undertake the journey to the area surrounding the fortress with their own car.
Getting there with a taxi:
Taxis can drop you off directly by the valley station of the fortress railway and can be ordered by calling 0043-662-8111.
Getting there with a car:
We recommend the Old Town car park “Altstadtgarage” at Hildmannplatz 1, Entry (Einfahrt) B. Then follow in the garage the signpost “FESTUNG/DOM”. The walk to the fortress from there then takes about 10 minutes. After leaving the garage cross the” Toscaninihof” and turn right direction “DOM (big cathedral)”. In front of the DOM you can see on the right sight the fortress at the mountain Mönchsberg. Cross the “Kapitelplatz” which leads into the Festungsgasse.
You can have your parking ticket punched at the evening box office at the entrance to the concert hall. You can then park at a reduced rate.
