HOHENSALZBURG FORTRESS

FRIDAY, 23 June – p.m.

After a morning of fun (and History) at Hellbrunn we visited Salzburg Alstadt (Old Town), particularly at the famous landmark, the HOHENSALZBURG Fortress. Towering high above the roofs of the medieval city stands the castle and modern fortress with 900 years of construction history. Impressive and unforgettable views of the prince archbishop city and the mountain landscape. It is central Europe’s largest, completely preserved fortress dating from the 11th century. The Funicular was built in 1892 and is the oldest in Austria.
