Hohensalzburg Fortress or Salzburg Castle

The castle of Salzburg or Hohensalzburg Fortress is the mightiest defense building in Central Europe. During its long history, which probably precedes the Medieval building from the 11th century, it was besieged only once: During peasant wars in the 16th century, the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg seeked refuge in the fortress.
