Hohensalzburg is impossible to miss, as it sits above the Altstadt on Festungsberg Hill. The tremendous castle was built in 1077 and has never been conquered. Inside the castle, visitors can find multiple towers, courtyards, a fortress museum and the medieval prince’s apartments. Also, don’t miss the beautiful Chapel of Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach. While the inside of the castle is beautiful, the views of Salzburg from the outside are also breath-taking, extending right across the old town, the Salzach River and to the snow-topped Bavarian Alps in the distance.
