Festung Hohensalzburg

The size of this castle is absolutely unbelievable. Festung Hohensalzburg dominates the city of Salzburg. It was built during the 11th century and expanded in size during several hundred of the following years.

Today it is the largest completely preserved medieval castle in Europe.

Inside the intricate wood carved and painted ceilings were fascinating. There is also a room used for storage of equipment used for torture.

A chapel completes this castle complex.
