We had a lot of fun. The shipping was great. Much has been declared about Salzburg. The staff was very friendly. Then we were allowed to take the train to the castle. The food at the castle was amazing, well organized. Very professional staff, and the food delicious. The Salzburger Nockerln in particular were a pleasure.

On the occasion of our 40th wedding anniversary, I surprised my wife with a stay of several days in a castle in Salzburg. The dinner and concert was also a surprise that fit the bill perfectly. A beautiful location, a delicious dinner and a very atmospheric concert.

We enjoyed this evening. The team of the restaurant is soooo welcoming and kind! The panoramic view worth this money. And music ..was just amazing, like all of Mozart! I recommend this program!

It was an excellent concert and one of the best Mozart music experience you can get in Salzburg. A must do activity if you do visit Salzburg.

We recommend uncomplicated exchange for a ticket without waiting at any time!
