Toy Museum

The Toy Museum is a child’s dream come true. A place filled with toys that are not just there to be admired, they can also be played with. A museum where children can simply let loose and enjoy – especially in the play zones. In addition to the many toys, there is also a children’s theatre and a children’s cinema. The museum also has many historic toys from former generations on display that are just as appealing to the children of today.

Hohensalzburg Fortress

Hohensalzburg Castle is the largest fully-preserved fortress in central Europe. The castle was built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard and extended by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach between 1495 and 1519. One of the many interesting facts about the fortress is that it was never successfully conquered by enemy troops during its more than 900 year history. A visit is highly recommended!

Mirabell Palace

Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau had the palace built in 1606 as a token of his love for Salome Alt. From 1721 to 1727, the palace was remodelled by Price-Archbishop Franz Anton. In 1818 the palace was badly damaged by a city fire and subsequently rebuilt. The extensive Mirabell Gardens are also very impressive and often used as a backdrop for wedding photos.
