Hohenwerfen Castle is a well-preserved medieval fortress from the 11th century. It stands on a rock in the Salzach valley, in Austria
, right next to the highway to the city of Salzburg
. The castle is so large and stands so high that you can not miss it. Regarding the location of the castle, the visitors can get from the lower parking place to Hohenwerfen Castle by an elevator. However, we recommend a walk through the woods (uphill) to everyone with no health problems. Hohenwerfen Castle offers its visitors an insight into its long history, it also hosts several exhibitions. There is an interesting exhibition of falconry, which was very famous in this region.
