Photographer's Note

A view from the Fortress of Hohensalzburg...
I especially like the presence of three walking figures here, which give a feeling of a "wide landscape". Oh, what a clean and tidy place is Salzburg...


The mightiest fortress of central Europe, a powerful castle sitting in a prominent position, undoubted Salzburg’s prime attraction and most dominant feature of the city’s skyline: the “Festung Hohensalzburg” or “Hohensalzburg Fortress” ought not to be missed at any Salzburg visit.

The first record of a fortification on the southern side of the Mönchsberg Mountain dates back to Roman time, but this is not certain. However, it would make sense: from the position of Hohensalzburg one can see the surroundings of Salzburg and the Salzach river better than anywhere else in the entire city.
