Salzburg Castle (Feste Hohensalzburg)

Salzburg Castle has two features of interest to the garden historian:
  • gun terraces which could have been used for domestic purposes in peacetime (like the bulwarks which are the etymological, and functional, origin of the English word 'boulevard'
  • an internal courtyard providing shelter from those who had to leave on an exposed hilltop for reasons of security
