Fortress Hohensalzburg

Salzburg, Austria
4.9 / 14
11th century Romanesque castle, built under Archbishop Gebhard. The severe bulk of the fortress rises above the city and is its architectural dominant. Over the past centuries, the castle was completed and fortified many times, gradually turning it into an almost impregnable bastion. For nine centuries, Hohensalzburg has stood against the backdrop of the picturesque Alps, during which time it withstood several sieges, managed to serve as a barracks and a gloomy prison.
