Storming the Hohensalzburg Castle

Hohensalzburg Castle is one of the largest, and best preserved medieval castles in all of Europe. The Reckturm Torture Tower was the highlight of our castle wanderings, with a name like that, how could it not be tickled?

Getting to the castle on the mountain looked to be quite a daunting task. No wonder it had only been attacked once since it was built back in 1077. But luck and modern convenience were on our side. Nowadays there is an electric cable railway, or funicular, to take people up the rocky face of the mountain.

It’s glass encased and goes STRAIGHT UP!
