The Festungsbahn is a funicular railway that connects Salzburg’s town center to its most popular attraction, the Festung Hohensalzburg. It will carry you 651 feet uphill, saving you the long walk to the top and giving you a great view over the beautiful city below on your journey. Tickets combining a ride on the funicular with entry to the fortress are available, or you can just take a ride to the panorama point with an audio guide.
