Climb up to the Petersberg Citadel

Climb up to the Petersberg Citadel

Mysterious passageways deep beneath an ancient fortress

This tour takes you through the historical old quarter and up to the only extensively preserved baroque town fortress in central Europe. The Petersberg Citadel, built between 1664 and 1707, is still mightily impressive today on account of its sheer scale and reflects the European style of fortress construction. The tour of the citadel’s underground tunnels is of particular interest. There is an amazing view out across the city from the fortress plateau.


The public guided tour is only available in German.

In other laguages only available as group guided tours.
