Austrian Castle

February 11, 2013

High atop a hill near Salzburg, you'll find the Hohensalzburg fortress, built almost a thousand years ago, and one of the best examples of fortress construction to be found in Europe. A private tour of this gorgeous castle is well worth your time. The fortress contains spectacular apartments, many complete with antique furniture and fine art adorning the walls, and even has an intimate chapel built over 500 years ago by the local archbishop. For the more gritty-minded tourist, there are even medieval torture chambers! Round out your visit to the castle by visiting the on-site museum, where you'll learn the details of daily life for the castle-dwellers, see historical items found during excavations, and learn about the history of the building. This fascinating insight into history will complete your trip to Salzburg.
