Festung Hohensalzburg – how strenuous?

Jump to last reply

I have toured the fortress Festung Hohensalzburg in Salzburg but it has been years. I'll be there in September with several friends, some of whom do not walk too well (not disabled, but use a cane, and get tired easily).

Has anyone recently visited this fortress who can remind me how strenuous the visit is? I remember long corridors and stairways up and down, but what I don't recall is whether there are parts of the fortress one can visit straight off the lift from central Salzburg without having to embark on the tour. I know there are two or three museums, but again, are these somewhat accessible from the castle entry point? Other points of interest connected with the fortress that don't involve climbing lots of steps? Is it feasible to start the tour and then cut it short if it proves too strenuous? (Some tour itineraries force one to complete the entire circuit to exit.)

Thanks for any advice.
