Salzburg Fortress - Salzburg's land-mark - located in the heart of the Old City behind the cathedral. You can walk up to the Fortress or take the funicular railway, which takes you directly into it, and immediately brings to the restaurant. Good footwear is recommended for those looking to walk the 20 minutes up the steep path. The path leads up the "Festungsgasse" lane to the entrance, then on to the gateway arches of the courtyard.
