Get A Panoramic View Of The City From The Salzburg Castle

The Salzburg Castle, also known as the Hohensalzburg Castle, sits on top of a small hill called Festungsberg. It is of the largest medieval European castles and its majestic white walls are visible from a long distance when you are approaching Salzburg. Climb up to the top of the castle to get a beautiful panoramic view of the city. It is breathtaking! The open courtyards of the castle often hold many events and concerts and if you are lucky you can catch one too!
