"Festunghohensalzburg" Hohensalzburg Fortress Tip by sswagner

Hohensalzburg Fortress, Salzburg: 204 reviews and 363 photos

by sswagner

This fortress on a hill dominates the old city of Salzburg. There is an admission fee to enter the compound. During my summer visit, there was tram that could take people up there. There is also the option of simply walking to reach the entrance. This fortress has a lot of areas to see, and contains some exhibits. Great panoramic views of the area can be had from the walls. Probably, the best views of the city can be found here. There were a couple of small places to eat inside the fortress.
