Travellers on a holiday to Salzburg cannot help but be entranced by the beautiful castles that are scattered throughout the city. The Schloss Mirabell is a particularly scenic site for its lovely Baroque gardens, elegant statues, and eye-pleasing marble floors and accents. The Hohensalzburg Fortress is also a must-see attraction. This medieval fortress looms over the city from the top of a mountain, and offers incredible views of Salzburg and the mountains beyond. Inside there are ornately decorated bedrooms, an ancient chapel, and unique displays of medieval weapons and instruments of torture.
