There Since 1077

The white fortress over the roofs of Salzburg

This white fortress has been looming over the rooftops of the city on the Salzach since 1077. It’s the largest complete castle in Central Europe. The fortress was constructed because of a disagreement between the Pope and the King – the Investiture Controversy. Archbishop Gebhart von Salzburg was on the side of the Pope. To protect himself from King Heinrich IV, Archbishop Gebhart von Salzburg commissioned Hohensalzburg Castle.
