    Unfortunately, the visit costs admission, but it is always worth a look at the fortress. In the entrance is also the museum, for some parts you have to pay extra.

    The fortress Hohensalzburg is the landmark of Salzburg. It is located on a city hill above the city of Salzburg, the fortress mountain, which continues northwest into the Mönchsberg. The foothills in the east of the fortress hill is called Nonnberg, on which directly below the eastern grounds of the fortress - the Nonnbergbasteien - the Benedictine nun Nonnberg is located. Fortress Hohensalzburg is one of the largest castles in Europe with over 7,000 m² of built-up area (including the bastions over 14,000 m²). It is Europe's largest castle complex dating back to the 11th century, it is the largest fully preserved castle in Central Europe and with more than one million visitors a year the most visited sight of Austria outside of Vienna, and in the federal capital only of Schönbrunn Palace and the Tiergarten Schönbrunn is exceeded (visitor statistics 2013).
