The Festung Hohensalzburg is one of the largest and best-preserved medieval castles in Europe. Looking down over the city, visitors are treated to not only a great view, but a fascinating look into the lives of the fortress’ inhabitants throughout the centuries. Lines for tickets and the funicular railway can be very long in summer, so it’s recommended that you buy tickets in advance.
