Below the north side of Salzburg fortress lies the old town, and this funicular railway is everyone’s preferred way of going from one to the other. Opened in 1892, this is the oldest funicular in the country, and has always been hugely popular. Taking one minute to rise 99 meters, and going a length of 191 meters, the funicular serves up some of the more unusual angles from which to photograph Salzburg. Visitors can sometimes be confused by the high prices quoted for the ride, but those also include the admission fees to the fortress itself.
