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.

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.
