  • A visit can be done, it's the Museum inside the fortress where there are apparently weapons from various eras and some representations of battles with pseudo stylized mannequins.

  • The Museum at once! It is possible to visit, but absolutely not impressed! If nothing more to see, you can go!

  • Pretty cool museum on the history of the city and the fortress
  • Visiting the fortress you will discover, inside the ramparts, the Church, the puppet Museum, princely rooms and military Museum (Rainer) which houses weapons of the last world wars and beyond, armour, uniforms and various memorabilia related to the army Austrian and European history and Habsburg. Interesting, not particularly large ... frankly not unforgettable

  • For people interested that okay. The Prince's room was nice to look at. The highlight of the fortress is the prospect for me, only because the Museum I would not ramped up probably.

Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.
