At this combined classic tour you’ll visit first the most interesting sights of Salzburg (see »City walk«) and as the icing on the cake we’ll ascend to the landmark of Salzburg. Effortlessly we’ll reach the top with the funicular railway in less than a minute.

You’ll enjoy the breath-taking view of the city and the Alps and get to know the history of the fortress.

You’ll learn which surprise is hidden in the archbishop’s dorm, which torture instruments can be found on the fortress and how they were used. You’ll hear what the fortress has in common with Paracelsus and many exciting and humorous legends.

* The ride with the funicular railway is not included in the guiding rates. At request it’s possible to visit only the fortress without a city walk. In this case we recommend to visit the fortress museum, too.
