Hohensalzburg Fortress, Salzburg: 204 reviews and 363 photos
The Hohensalzburg Fortress is one of the largest & best preserved European fortresses from the Middle Ages.
Hohensalzburg Fortress, built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard, considerably enlarged by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495-1519), largest, fully-preserved fortress in central Europe. The medieval princes' apartments and the Fortress Museum are of particular interest. Since 1892 the fortress can easily be reached by funicular railway departing from the Festungsgasse.
