Mozart evening at the Kavalierhaus
Passive enjoyment, Eat, drink & celebrate, City of Salzburg
The palace of Schloss Kleßheim was built on the orders of Salzburg’s archbishops between 1687 and 1744 according to the plans of the famous baroque master builder - Fischer von Erlach. In 1866 Emperor Franz Josef I handed over the entire property to his younger brother, Archduke Ludwig Viktor, as a place to live – who in turn in 1881/82 had the ‘Winterhaus’ erected as a winter residence by the eminent Viennese architect Heinrich Ferstel. Since 1962 the Kavalierhaus has been under the ownership of Salzburg’s regional government and managed by the Salzburg Kleßheim Tourism School to educate and train the tourism managers of the future. The elegant rooms and the conservatory are ideally suited to the staging of exclusive festivities such as weddings, banquets, receptions and presentations. Any of these magnificent halls can be hired along with waiters in typical costumes of the Mozart period to serve aperitifs ahead of the grand gala dinner. Dessert is followed by a humorous look at the life and works of Mozart the composer and musician.
