Castle overlooking the town of Salzburg

The Fortress Hohensalzburg was built in 1077. It is the largest, preserved medieval fortress in Central Europe. The castle was built by Salzburg's Archbishop Gebhard. Climb the stairs on the castle walls to get a wonderful view of the city below.

Tram going up to the Castle

Plan on spending some time in the Castle. If you can, go to a concert in the evening at the castle, but stay away from the restaurant at the top of the tram, its terrible!

There a couple nice outside cafes across the river that serve great lunches. After lunch try a walk on the wide walking path that follows the river, very peaceful.

    Great Page. I was in Hellbrunn in '82, with a school party- they soaked us at every feature (starting at the table- I had the bishop's seat!). Great Pictures too.

    I'll have to return when you have completed the pages. So far, it is quite fascinating. Hellbrunn sounds great. Fun stuff. Brilliant, vivid photographs.
