Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg
Austria, Salzburg

The 11th-century fortress was built on a rocky base and rises above the city at an altitude of about 120 meters. Originally built by Archbishop Gebhard to repulse the attacks of neighboring Bavarians, the fortress was largely redone at the beginning of the 16th century by Archbishop Leonard von Koichach, who added lavish chambers. Visitors can roam the courtyard and the surroundings of the fortress for free, but a guided tour of the interior will be paid. Two museums are also located within the fortress; they contain a collection of weapons, ammunition and instruments of torture.
