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.
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.
Great experience, really amazing castle and views! Shame you can't take pics inside, but it was well worthwhile! The guide Paul Riedel was very informative and gregarious, making it highly memorable. I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Munich and Bavaria.
If you have 2-3 hours free time to spend in Salzburg don't hesitate to visit that attraction and you will not regret. Buy the tickets online for your convenience and get up to there
Overall very happy with the price and experience that came along with our ha hung the Hohenzollern Fortress and Dome Quarter entry tickets.
