Observation Tower & Dinner & Best of Mozart Concert

A world-class experience!

Enjoy a fantastic 360-degree view of the enchanting city of Mozart and its surroundings from the imposing observation tower of the world-famous Fortress Hohensalzburg. On the way back from the observation tower, you even have the possibility of viewing the acoustic landmark of Fortress Hohensalzburg – a mechanical organ called “the Salzburg Bull”. The father of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Leopold Mozart, even composed a piece especially for this organ, which is the oldest horn mechanism in the world.

Culinary and musical delights high above the city's rooftops - more than just a concert!

A unique and unmistakable highlight is the dinner in the Panorama Restaurant on the Fortress Hohensalzburg. High above the rooftops of the city, the evening begins with a  3-course dinner in the most beautiful facilities the restaurant has to offer. The breathtaking view of the city of Salzburg where Mozart was born and the beauty of the landscape, surrounded by majestic mountains, truly are very special indeed. 
And thus, your romantic evening is complete!
