St. Peter’s Abbey Cellar

Charlemagne is said to have dined in Austria’s oldest restaurant by far – the origins of which date back approximately 1,200 years to the Carolingian era. Despite its age, the restaurant is in excellent condition and filled with life and it offers the most extraordinary culinary experiences in all of Salzburg. The candlelit Mozart dinner concerts in the Baroque Hall are magical.
