The Festung or Hohensalzburg Fortress, the chief landmark of Mozart’s city, is the largest, fully-preserved fortress in central Europe.
Hohensalzburg Fortress, built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard, considerably enlarged by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495-1519), largest, fully-preserved fortress in central Europe. The medieval princes’ apartments and the Fortress Museum are of particular interest. Since 1892 the fortress can easily be reached by funicular railway departing from the Festungsgasse.
Getreidegasse is the heart of Austria’s most beautiful shopping center. Artistic portals, picturesque arcaded courtyards.
Today most people are attracted to the Getreidegasse because of its multitude of shops selling jewelry, “Trachten” or traditional costumes, the latest fashions, antiques, leather and paper goods, parfumes, delicatessen and just about anything one could want. Even today, the elegant and intricate guild signs of the restaurants, shops and workshops project above the visitors’ heads. Many of these elaborate “advertising signs” are the product of skilful craftsmanship.
