Versatile, ornate and a well-kept secret

What was originally a room for small society celebrations is a well-kept secret available for hire for events in Salzburg. The throne room can be rented exclusively for an event with the approval of the facility administrators. It can accommodate up to 180 guests. Why not enjoy cocktails in the White Hall followed by a banquet in the throne room?


This impressive hall for festivities and social gatherings is decked in a sophisticated shade of red, and boasts a splendid mural by Michael Rottmayr on the ceiling. The painting portrays the legendary Feast of the Gods at the marriage of Thetis. One door connects the throne room with the former private chambers of the prince bishops in the Toscana tract, today home to the University of Salzburg. Even when the weather outside in the summer is scorching hot, the throne room remains pleasantly cool, and the old parquet floor and splendid chandeliers give the venue a charming and sophisticated atmosphere.
