Built in the Middle Ages and continuously expanded and adapted over the centuries, Hohensalzburg Fortress became an impregnable structure - a fortress of protection in the midst of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.
Today, the fortress is not only impressive but also the most recognized landmark of Mozart's city, and the second most important sight after Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. I love standing on one of the mighty bastions, looking over in awe, appreciation, and wonder at this incredible city.
Tour itinerary: Chapter Square - fortress cable car - Castle grounds - Chapel - Museum - Prince’s Chambers - return on foot or by the fortress cable car
Add-on tour package:
Who wouldn't like to take a look behind closed doors every now and then? On the "secret corners" tour, I literally open up rooms for you that remain closed on a normal guided tour. Be curious!
(Price not included, calculate about 1 hour extra).
