Bundesland Salzburg Things to Do: 146 reviews and 216 photos
As we approach the castle by the town funicular, I speculate how difficult it must have been for Medieval knights, attacking in heavy armor, to climb the hill from the city below. The tramway, built over 100 years ago makes our journey easy. We are on our way to the largest, fully preserved castle in central Europe, the Hohensalzburg Fortress. Dominating Salzburg’s skyline, the 900-year-old citadel sits on a 1600-foot-high hill and gives the city a fairy tale feeling. We have come to admire the views and shoot pictures before the curtain call for a 4-piece chamber music ensemble of Mozart’s best pieces. Below, the glaciated waters of the River Salzach divides the "old" and the "new" city. Baroque churches, spires, and fountains line the streets of old Salzburg and the Alps rise beyond the city.
