  • Would anyone visit such a museum were it not in this historic fortress? It doesnt have a lot to offer. Most information was not relevant to the Fort itself, and speaks generally about war, or medieval...  more »
  • a visit worth, starting with the Roman parts of the Castle, through Gothic and Baroque to the French armies and the first world war. Beautiful ornate rooms, breathtaking views to 360°, coins, old weapons and much more. Check it out

  • This is a nice visit to do while you are in the fortress. It will probably take you about 20 minutes to go through it.  more »

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.
