Hohensalzburg fortress stands in all its magnificence high over the city. It is a great tourist attraction.
You can ride to the top in the funicular cable cart or take a leisurely walk up to the castle. On the way up you will be delighted with the magic views over the beautiful city.
The castle hosts many events at different times during the year. There is a fabulous concert hall in the castle. Lovely restaurants and a great museum.
The cannons all had names like little dragon and “der grobe Pfüff” (something like the rough puffer), the big cannons could fire stones as heavy as 200kg
