Experience history

Children’s audio guide

Information prepared for children

Children have their own way of learning and exploring, so at Hohensalzburg Castle we have developed audio guides that are fully tailored to children’s needs. We currently have children’s audio guides in German, English and Italian. They are available at the information point by the entrance to the inner rooms.

Children’s birthday parties

An unforgettable afternoon

For a children’s birthday at Hohensalzburg Castle, the birthday boy or girl and their friends meet in the old town, just behind the cathedral. The castle must be conquered before the children can explore the secret nooks and crannies of the castle. Once they arrive in the castle courtyard, freshly made bread will be ready for them in the old bakery. You can choose from various themes for the children's birthday party at Hohensalzburg Castle: Knightly tournaments and skill-based games are scheduled in the program so the children are guaranteed plenty of fun. The children can also reenact scenes from old sagas and legends, or slip into the costumes of former nobles.
