Reigning majestically over the rooftops of Salzburg, Hohensalzburg Fortress is the largest fully‐preserved fortress in Central Europe. Built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard, the fortress was considerably expanded by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495‐1519), and its exterior has remained substantially unaltered since then. The fortress' interior was richly decorated: Intricate Gothic wood‐carvings and ornamental paintings decorate the Golden Hall and the Golden Chamber. Hohensalzburg Fortress offers visitors a stunning view of the city of Salzburg and its surroundings.
