Medieval festivities in Fortress Hohensalzburg
Outdoor & Active, Eat, drink & celebrate, Salzburg city experience, City of Salzburg
The 900 year old fortress is an excellent venue for events and celebrations – or for a trip back in time. Enjoy the food, drink, pleasures and entertainment of the medieval period. The evening begins with a welcome drink and leads on to plenty of typical rustic delicacies of the age such as knights’ lard spread, herb curd cheese and crispy bread, cream of potato soup with mushrooms, grilled suckling pig fatback and loin, pork ribs, a warm cabbage salad with smoked bacon, oven-baked potatoes with chive sauce and dumplings, plus baked apples with a nut filling, cowberries and vanilla sauce.
There are also plenty of old medieval activities. Try firing a crossbow, throwing the horseshoe or a wood tile race.
