How to get there

Festung Hohensalzburg, Mönchsberg 34 (Google maps plus code: Q2WW+3X Salzburg, Österreich)

The Fortress Hohensalzburg is reachable via the fortress railway, Festungsgasse 4, 47°47'44''N 13°2'46''E  (Google maps plus code: Q2WW+HC Salzburg, Österreich)
Please present your print@home ticket at the ticket counter of the fortress railway valley station in order to receive a free ticket for the fortress railway.
The ascent with the fortress railway is applicable to concert guests from one hour before the concert and for dinner + concert guests from 30 minutes before the dinner respectively!

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.

Dress code: festive - elegant
