The FestungsBahn has operated since 1892, popular with locals and tourists alike. Hohensalzburg Fortress, the emblem of Salzburg city, is easy to reach thanks to Austria’s oldest funicular. The ride on the FestungsBahn takes just 54 seconds – revealing a whole new perspective of the city. Attractive combo tickets for the funicular and fortress guarantee an exciting visit. The all-inclusive ticket provides your ride up and down the mountain, audio guided tour, entrance to the fortress grounds, Fortress Museum, Rainer Museum, Marionette Museum and the Almpassage, as well as admission to the Princes’ Chambers and Magic Theater.

The sightseeing of the Hohensalzburg Fortress can be perfectly combined with lunch or dinner at the Panorama Restaurant to the Hohensalzburg Fortress or the Stieglkeller Salzburg, which is located at the foot of the Mönchsberg. For all those who would like to make a little journey back in time to the Middle Ages, the medieval festival on the fortress is just the thing!
