What You Can Expect

Schloss Mirabell Classical Music Concert in Salzburg

Enjoy a classical concert in the Castle Mirabell!

Head to Schloss Mirabell in the center of Salzburg and step inside for your concert. The inside of the palace is only accessible to the public by attending a concert such as this, so you’ll see the palace’s grandeur that not many get to see.

Built in 1606 for the Archbishop of Salzburg, the palace was later burnt down in the city fire of 1818. Fortunately, the two must-see areas of the palace – the Marble Hall (Marmorsaal) and the Donnerstiege -- were not harmed, and they’ve retained their exquisite Baroque appeal.

Walk past the Donnerstiege – a spectacular marble staircase adorned with sculptures – and then head into the Marble Hall. The opulent chandeliered room was once the Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich’s banquet hall, as well as the place where Mozart’s father is said to have rehearsed.

A host will show you to your seat inside the hall, and then all that’s left to do is sit down and enjoy your 1-hour and 40-minute, chamber-music concert. Performed by a smaller number of musicians than for a typical symphony orchestra, chamber music was historically created for performances inside intimate private rooms, like the Marble Hall.

The instruments will typically include piano, viola, violin and cello, and classical music composed between the 17th and 19th centuries will be played. The pieces of music played vary per concert, but you can expect to hear music by much-loved composers like Mozart, Bach, Handel and Beethoven.

Half-way through the performance, there is a 10-minute break, and at the end of the concert, simply make your own way out of the palace.

I really enjoyed the music but did not enjoy the children that was running loose and no one was taking care of them.

I got the best seat in the house, thanks to you. I was right in front of the pianist and violinist who both hit every note pitch perfect. This is a must experience for any Salzburg visit.

I attended the Schloss Mirabell concert and had a wonderful time. The concerts are always different and a schedule is available at the Mirabell Palace. The night I went, there were three excellent female musicians playing Mozart and Bach on piano, cello, and violin. I purchased advanced seating and was positioned in the middle front row only a few feet from the musicians. The venue is beautiful with very good acoustics and the music was wonderful. Because the concerts are all different, it is hard to know exactly what to expect but I was very pleased by superior seats to an excellent concert in a spectacular and historical setting.

Beautiful venue with great acoustics! It was a relatively small room in the palace, and the musicians were outstanding, making it personal and very rewarding. We brought our 9-yr-old son who loves classical music, and the musicians were available during the break for him to speak to, which made it a perfect evening for us.

Concert was fantastic. The venue is gorgeous and we had front row seats. The musicians were wonderful - all in all a great evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

We had a really lovely evening. It was perfect to have the opportunity to attend a small venue in a beautiful historic Salzburg building, and listen to Mozart and other composers being played by a group of very talented musicians, who also obviously seemed to be enjoying performing for us.

Awesome musicians. It was a bit hard to find the entrance to the concert (no signs to the concert hall) but the performance was great.
