This was the highlight of our very rainy day in Salzburg. A day that would have been a total bust, if not for this highlight. We took the tram up, which was covered by our Salzburg day pass (well worth it for 24 (or so) Euro. The views from up the castle are just breathtaking, and we didn't even make it all the way to the top, where an elevator takes you on a small tour! The city looks so perfect nestled next to the river. It looks like you imagine old Europe to look like. Well worth the visit, especially if you are interested in old castles, with a lot of history.
