Concerts at the Baroque Hall St. Peter
Mozart and Dinner Concerts
St. Peter's Abbey is one of the oldest Benedictine monasteries and one of the oldest with a continuous history.
It was built by St. Rupert around 696. Findings under the altar's church date back to the fifth century and indicate that there was a church bulding during the days of Severinus of Noricum. It is likely that a small monastic community was present and was expanded by St. Rupert. Until 987 the office of Salzburg's Archbishop was linked to that of the abbot, the two were always held by one man. St. Peter's remained the Archbishop's residence until 1110.
In the Middle Ages, the St. Peter's monastery was known for it's writing school. It is also the mother convent of the Benedictine Abbey Admont in Styria. In the 15th century, the abbey adopted the Melk Reforms. In 1622, Archbishop Paris of Lodron built the Benedictine University of Salzburg, which was closely connected to the monastery until its dissolution in 1810.
The Stiftskulinarium St. Peter is one of the oldest restaurants in Europe. The inn was first mentioned in 803 on the occasion of Emperor Charlemagne's visit. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's sister Nannerl, wrote in her diary in 1786 that the family met here for dinner. The composer Michael Haydn lived and played in the "Haydn Room" located right next to the Baroque Hall. Some of Haydn's works have premiered in the Baroque Hall.
The Baroque Hall of the St. Peter's Stiftskulinarium is one of the few Salzburg concert rooms where real candlelight is still permitted.
The Baroque Hall is located up on the first floor of the restaurant (unfortunately there is no elevator). People in wheelchairs can be carried up by the employees on site (this does not apply to electric, heavy wheelchairs). We kindly ask you to let us know while reserving your tickets and to arrive no later than 6:30pm.
