What people are saying about Salzburg

Since the hall was not well attended that day (a tour group did not show up), we received an upgrade and were allowed to sit directly in front of the stage as a couple. The service staff was very friendly and courteous. The room is a visual highlight! The whole building is gorgeous. We still had Christmas trees and decorations there in January and it was really festive. We really enjoyed the menu and it was of good quality. The music was well chosen and contained only the most well-known pieces by Mozart, e.g. B. Don Giovanni and the little evening music.

Everything was wonderful - from the interior, which transports you to the time of Mozart, to his immortal and beautiful music. The dinner was excellent and elegant, as was the service. And the musicians and singers were wonderful! Thanks for the atmosphere you created and the wonderful mood!

I booked at short notice and everything worked perfectly. Courteous staff and above all: excellent artists! Wonderfully trained, velvety voices, and Mozart's cheeky humor hit the heart ♥️! Thanks!

fantastic day would recommend Peter our guide was brilliant the day was topped off with a traditional Austrian meal at the Herzi restaurant in the old where we got fantastic service and excellent food
