About Hallstatt

Day 5:Started our day with Salzburg Fortress (Festung Hohensalzburg). It is located on a mountain top overlooking Salzburg City. To reach here we boarded local bus till Rathaus and walked till Festungbahn. We reached by 9 AM. Fortress can be accessed on foot (a steep trek) or through Funnicular ride. We chose the latter option. Funnicular tickets, entry to Fortress, audio guide are all included with Salzburg card. Fortress is divided into 3 sections, A, B and C. B and C are basically the museums exhibiting an extensive collection of military equipment, clothing, ornaments from over the centuries. The boring part for us! The audio guide is for section A, narrating history of fortress while touring around this section. It also includes the panoramic view of whole Salzburg city and countryside from the tower. That was the most interesting part which cannot be missed at all! You can easily spend 2 hours here! We spent a lot of time roaming around in fortress.
