My family and I visited Hohensalzburg Fortress on a rainy Friday. I booked tickets the day before with GetYourGuide. We parked our Honda Pilot in an outdoor lot on Petersbrunnhofstr. €15/24hr maximum. We walked up and around the base of the fortress, stopping by the active abbey Nonnberg. The chapel is dark and reverent. Continuing around the base of the fortress mount, we veered away from the castle to arrive at the ticket counter for the funicular railway. No issues with showing the confirmation on my mobile phone. We took the rail up the mountain and followed the signs to "A", where we got audio tour handsets for each person. My children ages 10, 8, 6, and 5 loved this portion of the tour. The audio tour options were based on age, and were very well done. This tour is highly recommended. This tour is not wheelchair accessible in my opinion.

It was good, we liked the fact that it was open on a 1st of January. Even though there were two tours but one of them (the old town) was not available on that day, but the other was really good. The only bad thing about all the tours we bought over Get your guide its that you have to redeem the online vouchers in some other place than the attraction and make the line when you get to the place you want to visit. It works if you want to secure your seat/entrance but otherwise is the same if you buy the ticket at the counter.

The view from the fortress ist just gorgeous! The musicians were talented and the pieces very pretty. Since we went at 8.30 one tends to get quite tired during the last pieces but it was very upbeat music in the end and kept that lack of concentration to the end at a minimum. I would definitely recommend this trip super affordable and a nice Visite. I went with my grandma and she loved it!

A great experience in and awesome place, so full of history, definitively a place to visit if you go to Salzburg. The only problem was that we have to make the line in order to redeem our tickets, I thought that if we bought them online we could go straight in, but the line move pretty fast so other than that an excellent way to spend your day in Salzburg.

This fortress is a must when one visits Salzburg. Going up early in the morning by funicular is recommended as you would have the opportunity to enjoy without the crowds and you can enjoy everything at your own leisure.
