View as seen from Fortress Hohensalzburg, a castle in the Austrian city of Salzburg, atop the Festungsberg mountain. It is one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. You can either take a funicular up to the castle or walk up the steps. Salzburg is one of my favorite cities to visit, because it has a certain charm to it and it`s cozy in my opion. It`s the birthplace of composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and it was the setting for parts of the American musical and film The Sound of Music.
