    What to Expect
    Visit: Fortress Hohensalzburg, Moenchsberg 34, Salzburg 5020 Austria

    Fortress Hohensalzburg is a real eye-catcher over the Baroque towers of the city. Always a visible landmark, the castle is an unmistakable part of the world-famous Salzburg silhouette. Looking mighty from afar, visitors experience its history first hand behind its thick walls.

    360 degrees view

    Exceptional views over the city of Mozart

    The Medieval castle complex and the modern castle towers majestically above the Salzburg city rooftops with 900 years of building history. The view over the Archbishop’s city and the mountainous region is spectacular and unforgettable. The panorama alone is worth visiting Fortress Hohensalzburg

    Experience a trip back to the Middle Ages

    The mysterious Prince’s Chambers of Fortress Hohensalzburg is one of the highlights of your visit. Discover the most well-preserved Gothic secular buildings in Europe and find out the exciting background about the life and work of Salzburg rulers and their subjects. The multimedia exhibition and the new magic theater will make your visit an unforgettable experience.

    Travel up and down on the funicular

    The quickest route to Fortress Hohensalzburg

    Real adventurers will want to climb the castle on foot. But the funicular is quicker and more comfortable - riding up to the castle every ten minutes. By the way: did you know that the funicular is the oldest in Austria? It has transported visitors up to the castle since 1892 - but in those days it was still powered by water. Today it is a highly modern rail system which meets all the comfort and safety requirements.

    What an outstanding view of Salzburg from the top!!! While the fortress itself was a historical delight, we enjoyed the beautiful sights of God’s creation!!! If you visit Salzburg, be sure to take the ‘FUN’icular up the mountain.
