Sure you can ride up with your Salzburg Card, but the hike gives you a different experience. Never saw so many red faced out of breath people in one place in my life!

Amazing views from Salzburg, going up worth so much! Winter, summer, spring or autumn, the views are fantastic and it will be a memory you will never forget. Beautiful traditional restaurant outdoors and indoors where to grab drinks or food. Right in the city centre so no excuses to go up ( it only takes 1 or 2 minute to go up by cable car)

We did not get a chance to enter the fortress because of time, closed early. But we did had an amazing time with the views, great pictures.

Took the train up to the top since we were in a crunch for time. Worth the visit to see Salzburg and the surrounding mountains. Stop have a beer or two in the cafe up top surrounded by some surreal landscape. The fort is nice too :-)

We took the cable car to the Salzburg Fortress and had a private guide which showed us the old and wonderful rooms of the bishops. Furthermore there is a wonderful view from the castle to the city and countryside. We loved it
