Europe's largest castle complex and landmark of the city of Salzburg. Tours of the castle – magnificent view of the city from the Reckturm. The fortress Hohensalzburg is the largest and fully-preserved fortress in central Europe. Built in 1077 by Archbishop Beghard, considerably enlarged by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495-1519). Particularly worth seeing are the medieval princes' apartments and the Fortress Museum.

Since 1892, the Hohensalzburg Fortress can be easily reached by a funicular railway from the Festungsgasse. In the long history of the fortress no besiegers have ever been able to take the it. For years the fortress was fortification and temporary residence of the prince archbishops. It also served as a barrack and a prison during the years.

Today the Hohensalzburg Fortress is open all year round and artists from all around the world meet here for courses at the International Summer Academy. The romantic courtyard and the bastions are also found in the medieval premises, where there are regularily held events – like the Fortress Concerts or the 'Jedermann' play in summer.
