Salzburg is also home to one of the oldest castles in Europe - Hohensalzburg. The construction of the castle was completed in the 11th century. The fortress really has dark and unapproachable look. Behind the massive walls of the castle are hidden luxurious rooms that are decorated with skillful wooden carvings and gilt trim. The famous fortress keeps many rare and precious artifacts, the most famous of which is the ancient organ named "Salzburg Bull".
Salzburg No Austrian city can be considered such without being associated with Christmas, as it is on this exact holiday that any city in Austria (and in particular, those located at the foot of the Alps) becomes a living embodiment of a Christmas village. Salzburg is very lucky – it so happens to be surrounded by majestic mountains, and is in itself almost an ideal place for the settlement of Weihnachtsmann. It is no surprise therefore that the Salzburger Weihnachtsmuseum is located here. The exhibits of the museum include everything that can only be connected with a religious holiday. Interesting history about the traditions of certain nationalities are told here too.

Salzburg Those who love walking around majestic ruins and at the same time experiencing unity with history, must definitely visit Richterhöhe am Mönchsberg. By the way, the view of the ruins themselves is simply spectacular from afar. On the other hand, the hometown of Mozart, and in particular the Hohensalzburg Fortress, offers a grand panoramic view. Here “rests in peace” a medieval fortress, from which several towers were preserved.
