Salzburg: Hohensalzburg Fortress Admission Ticket

1. Salzburg: Hohensalzburg Fortress Admission Ticket

Your visit to Salzburg Fortress starts with either a beautiful 20-30 minute walk or a quick and comfortable ride on Austria's oldest funicular (depending on tour option selected). Today you will find an ultra modern rail system instead of the original funicular, which was powered by water and transported people up and down the hill as early as 1892. Upon arrival at the top of the hill, experience a unique view over the Archbishop's city and the breathtaking landscape of Salzburg's mountains. Soak up the scenery, take photos, then continue with your visit to the medieval fortification complex, representing 900 years of building history. During your self-guided visit, explore all different parts of the castle and see why it was unconquered for more than 1000 years. Interact with models showing the various types of attack and defense practiced in a medieval fortress. Enjoy another highlight when you visit the Prince's Chambers, which ranks among the best-preserved secular buildings of the Gothic period. While walking through the complex, you'll always identify new views over the city and find many hidden corners of the castle just waiting to be discovered.

What people are saying about Hohensalzburg Fortress

The fortress is well worth seeing and should not be missed when visiting Salzburg. When the weather is good, the panorama from the tower is really great. Exchange of the voucher at the cash desk of the valley station without any problems, but overall there was not much going on. In this respect, the booking via GYG would not have been absolutely necessary.

Our 4 children and we parents were enthusiastic about the variety, the beautiful castle, the mountain railway, the view, etc. and that you could visit everything with this ticket.

Trip to the castle was nice. Amazingly extensive. The train ride was very quick, on the way back we took the footpath down.

We enjoyed looking around the Fortress, the cafe, the shop and the museum very much.

perfect but u should to take the tickets from.the cash
