Salzburg's most visible icon is this mighty 900-year-old cliff-top fortress, one of the biggest and best preserved in Europe. Climb up to the hill and take a look at the city by the Salzach River and the mountains. The fort also showcases a 1612 model of Salzburg, medieval instruments, armour and some pretty gruesome torture devices. Do not forget to take a look at the gold ceiling imitating a starry night sky where lavish banquets were once held. The view of the fortress lit up in the evening is a beautiful sight.
