The Fortress has interesting items from the early modern period, decorative, domestic and military, but most are not very well explained. The circuit was pretty chaotic, with doors closed off and no obvious way to proceed except by going backwards. Worth passing through if you're...More

Great. You've seen the castle from below in Salzburg. You've come up by the funicular or some other means. You've seen the views. Now what? The castle has a handful of small museums you can visit, including this one. None will knock your socks off,...More

If you wish to see much of the rich history of this place, you will be slightly underwhelmed by that Museum, not quite what I expected.

This museum is located at the Fortress and you have to walk up lots of stairs to get to it. The exhibits are interesting and varied. The stick men soldiers exhibit was a surprise and gave a different dimension to war battles. A very good...More

This museum was part of visiting the fort and well worth it. Great display especially for people interested in old military stuff. My husband was in his element!

This castle is a giant monument which offers spectacular views to the city and surroundings. The present exhibitions are well organized and offer an good insight in middle-age life and war.

It was such a nice and refreshing difference from most of the museums we had visited on our trip. It was a big eclectic but interesting. Worth the time to visit.

The displays of regiments, weapons, rulers, torture, and life at the fortress are well done and easy to walk through. I'd spend about an hour doing the entirety of the fortress and its grounds.

Worth spending a bit of time here if only just to see the excavations, they have uncovered an old oven area built of bricks, probably Roman I would think. Makes one think about the humble brick and it’s place in history, been around for ever,...More
