"Kuch" (Kitchen) Open fireplaces have always been a hazard. This is why large kitchens were often away from the places where people lived. Not so with this "lord's kitchen". It was directly next to the archbishop's rooms. The cook worked here only for the archbishop. Preparing meals produced drain water and rubbish. The cook threw drain water and rubbished out through the wail opening.

Look at this pretty list of goods in the castle from the middle ages:

Supplies in the Hohensalzburg Fortress for the princely household in 1526 Cistern Storerooms Winecellar two brewery buildings (for beer) Seven granaries with rye and wheat Austrian wine, more than 167,000 litres "All kinds of sweet wine" Malvasier Raifal Alsace Rhine wine Franconian wine Meat supplies 50 oxen, salted 100 oxen, livestock 30 calves, air-dried 200 laying hens 100 Hungarian sheep, air-dried ten dairy cows, livestock Seasoning and spices 8 pounds of saffron 42 pounds of pepper 16 pounds of ginger 2 pounds of cloves 2 pounds of nutmeg one hundredweight of almonds one hundredweight of grapes one hundredweight of figs 3 tonnes of honey three hundredweight of wax two casks of palm oil two barrels of linseed oil six hundredweight of rice two hundredweight of sugar

Hohensalzburg Castle in Salzburg of Jan 10, 2023

The Hohensalzburg Castle in Salzburg, Austria, is a stunning medieval fortress that sits atop a hill overlooking the city. It was initially built in the 11th century to protect the Archbishop of Salzburg. It has been expanded and renovated over the centuries to become one of the most impressive castles in Europe.

One interesting story about the castle is that in the 16th century, the Archbishop of Salzburg, Markus Sittikus, commissioned the famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's father, Leopold Mozart, to design and build a magnificent palace within the castle walls. Leopold, who was a skilled musician and composer himself, created a court that featured beautiful frescoes, ornate furnishings, and a grand ballroom where the Mozart family would often perform.

In addition to the palace, the castle also features several other exciting attractions, such as the Golden Hall, adorned with gold leaf and intricate frescoes, and the Torture Chamber, where visitors can see instruments of punishment used in medieval times. The castle can be reached by a funicular railway from the city or by a hike up the hill.

Today, the castle is a major tourist attraction, and it is open to the public for tours. Visitors can explore the palace and other parts of the court and take in the beautiful views of Salzburg and the surrounding Alps. It is a must-see place for anyone visiting Salzburg.

But let us first visit the catacombs at the bottom of monk hill. It is worth noting that the Catacombs are not prominent places, and they may not offer the same experience as some of the more famous catacombs worldwide. But it is a fascinating historical site that gives a glimpse into the past of Salzburg and offers a different perspective on the city's history.
