It is also known as the Hohenwerfen Castle and it is a place where you can discover many interesting things.

An incomparable landscape

This castle was built on a cliff which is just over 150 meters above the Salzach valley, one of the most beautiful in the country. In order to get to the castle, you have to walk around 3 kilometers of mountain slopes, which adds much more interest since the landscapes you will enjoy during the tour are truly spectacular. They are starting to build an elevator that will travel that distance, but there are still a few years for it to open.

It was completed in 1086 and during its long history it has been the residence of kings and princes and from the 18th century it functioned as state prison for many years. Today, it is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the area. In addition to visiting its facilities, you can also enjoy a falconry show and there is a playground with all kinds of activities for the little ones. In addition, throughout the year they are organized festivals and concerts.
