Hohensalzburg

Hohensalzburg

The Hohensalzburg fortress is magnificent overlooking the pristine old city of Salzburg. Either walking up the hill or taking the tram up, you’re treated to a series of fortifications culminating in the interior battlements and the keep itself.

Inside the keep is an outstanding museum, displaying the long and interesting history of the fortress. I was looking for a good place for photography, though, and the keep wasn’t it. The castle walls were off limits, but I saw people on top of one of the towers. Some searching later, I learned that the only way to get there was to go on a long public group tour of the history of the rulers of the city. I did, and I wouldn’t recommend it unless you really want to get to the top of this tower. I will say that it produced some nice photography, though!

This large panorama was originally 24580 x 9285. This was two frames high by 12 frames wide, or a panorama made up of 24 Canon 5d Mark II frames. I also took a panorama of the other side of the tower, which originally was 26703×4874:
