Hohensalzburg Castle – Europe’s biggest fortification and probably the most beautiful.

Fortress Hohensalzburg is a real eye-catcher peaking out high above the baroque towers of the city. The castle in Salzburg is an unmistakable landmark providing the city’s world famous silhouette. Even from afar the visitor is able to appreciate the might of this edifice. Up close the history contained in these powerful walls is almost tangible. The castle hosts many events during the year, and it also has a major concert hall. Inside the castle there is a permanent Fortress Museum that can be visited anytime of the year. Getting there is quite simple: one can take the funicular railway from the downtown that runs every 10 minutes. If one is physically fit, the road to the castle can be made by walk in about 30 minutes. There are many things one can see taking a walk up to the castle that otherwise would be missed, so the second option is recommended for those being able to make it. Inside the castle there are available audio guides in eight different languages: English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Chinese.
