Fortress Hohensalzburg is a real eye-catcher, high above the Baroque towers of the city. The castle remains a visible landmark to this day and is an unmistakable feature of Salzburg’s world-famous skyline. From afar, the mighty walls begin to reveal the history visitors experience at first hand within these sturdy defenses.
A highlight of every visit to the castle are the Prince’s Chambers. They rank among the best-preserved secular buildings of the Gothic period and offer an insight into the lives of the Prince Archbishops of Salzburg. There are many hidden corners of the castle just waiting to be discovered.
