Hohenwerfen Adventure Castle

Hohenwerfen castle is located on a 155m high rock outcrop approximately 40km south from Salzburg in the Salzach River valley. The majestic fortress is surrounded by the impressive Tennen and Hagen mountain ranges. Built in the 11th century it is a "sister castle" of Hohensalzburg fortress.
