Hohensalzburg Fortress, Salzburg.

Apparently this castle has only ever been besieged once.

From this angle, what is amazing to me is that anyone attempted to take this place by force at all…ever.

According to Wikipedia in 1525 a force of peasants and general citizens attempted the impossible, and failed.  They must have been insanely brave and they had to have truly hated the occupants.
