The Fortress

The fortress is the most visible landmark of Salzburg.  It was used both as a fortress to ward off attacks, and also as a residence off and on of the ruling Archbishop.  Today the fortress has many different areas to tour.  There were a lot of great opportunities to take amazing shots of the city and mountains, state rooms of the Archbishops to tour, a war museum, a prison area to tour and even a chance to see the "Salzburg Stier" which is a barrel organ that can either make nice music or battle-inspiring sounds, depending on the need of the city at the time.
