We went in Dec on the day that the winter monsters are in the fort. They are people dressed in masks and long coats, on stilts, who as part of a legend, try to steal people. Scary but fun and interesting. Lovely market for Christmas, mulled wine knocks your socks off. Interesting place to visit and the funicular railway is good too.

We have walked up and taken the funicular up. If you can walk it, it is worth it. Great views and not overly modernized.

An imposing structure overlooking the city of Salzburg. It was important to the history of Salzburg, so it is something to see. Interesting and great views from the top. Walk up is easy and doesn't take long. Have seen better fortresses in other cities but worth doing. The admission is included if you get the Salzburg which I highly recommend.

We took the fernicular up to the fortress and were awed by the wonderful views of Salzburg and surrounding area. We took a few hours to look around the fortress and learn more about its history. We also enjoyed the opportunities to capture the scenery from the many vantage points. After the fortress it is an easy walk to many restaurants and to the river and Mirabell Gardens. Definitely a must-do!

The Fortress in Salzburg was a very interesting, manageable attraction. It is in the old town so it was very easy to access and the quick cable car up made it even easier. The Fortress itself is very interesting and full of history.
