Apart from Mirabel gardens and of course the Old town this is a must see if visiting Salburg.
Great view on the city and few interesting spots inside the fortress.

Pretty incredible what they constructed. The view to the city is breathtaking. There is a small museum to see, it is OK. It is a whole city up there but there is not much to do or to see but enjoy view of Salzburg.

The view of the city was nice, the ride with the Festungsbahn was appreciated by our son, but apart from that, there was not much to do unless you wanted to eat lunch in the restaurant (which had a great view, so go for it, we didn't and cannot review the food, but the view is probably worth it :-)). Exhibitions were not that interesting, which means that we basically paid 25€ for the ride.

Not very interesting museum at the top but the views made it worthwhile. Get there early in the morning for less crowds. You can buy a tram ticket that includes the ride up and back down as well as full museum access at the top. Good deal only 11 euros.

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.
