Over the roofs of Salzburg – Amazing views from Hohensalzburg fortress

Salzburger Festung

Aiming high is most to our liking: the Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg.

Those liking to see things from an eagle’s perspective should absolutely opt for the Hohensalzburg Fortress. High up on the hill, these splendid castle grounds loom over Salzburg as a famous landmark. And it’s highly recommended to marvel at this historic site not just from afar: there are a lot of things to be discovered on site; hence even Salzburg natives like us come there over and over again.

Longer stay or fleeting visit to Salzburg? Highlights at the Hohensalzburg Fortress

The fortress offers the suitable activity, regardless of your time schedule: those not so keen on climbing can enjoy a spectacular ascent by funicular railway. On site, one may for instance buy an audio guide, discover the magnificent chambers, or visit one of the three local museums. Our suggestion: the practical Salzburg Card includes the funicular ride and the entrance fee for the fortress. One should of course finally take a selfie in front of the impressing backdrop! The atmospheric castle tavern and the beautiful restaurant complete the culinary offer.
