Fortress Hohensalzburg is a monument of over 900 years and is one of the largest existing 11th century fortresses in Europe. Every crevice of the walls, every nook and cranny of this magnificent complex brings forth its own fascinating background information, stories, myths and legends. Look back to the everyday lives of yesteryear as they may well have been in this centre of political power in the days of the archbishops. 

Today Fortress Hohensalzburg is a popular destination for trips and outings, and a must-see for every visitor to Salzburg. The highlights include the magnificent regency rooms which are among some of the most beautiful gothic secular chambers in Europe; the great 360° panorama view offered by the ‘Reckturm’ watchtower, and the fantastic and sophisticated atmosphere generated at the numerous fortress concerts. 

Then there’s the torture chamber, the illuminated lower church and the fortress museum. Alternatively, pass your time under one of the ancient Tilia trees in the idyllic surroundings of the castle courtyard – even the courtyard has a few stories to tell!
