Hohensalzburg Fortress was built in 1077 by archbishop Gebhard. It is the largest fully preserved fortress in central Europe, the castle has never been conquered by invading enemies. Located on top of a mountain, the castle offers visitors a fantastic view of the city and the surrounding mountains.
