Hohensalzburg Fortress, Salzburg

34 Mönchsberg
Tel: 43 66284 243011's insider take:

Looking like the box cover of a Goth videogame, the 11th-century Hohensalzburg looms over Salzburg. The stony facade is forbidding, and the complex includes the obligatory medieval torture chamber, but all the butch posturing is offset by the unexpected opulence of the state rooms and the ethereal views of Salzburg itself.

Open daily 9 am to 6 pm, May through June and September; 9 am to 7 pm, July and August; 9 am to 4:30 pm, October through April.
