Full description
Step back in time to the Middle Ages at Hohenwerfen Castle, a former fortification built in the 11th century and located on a steep peak high above the Salzach valley in the Pongau region of Salzburg. Choose between options that include a funicular ride up to and down from the castle, or make your own way up to the 155-meter (509-foot) peak with a 15-minute walk through light woodland.  Once at the top, visit the fortress, its chapel, torture chamber, and dungeon, and be captivated by its centuries-old history. Don’t forget to explore the arsenal, belfry, and royal apartment to see what life back then must have looked like. Besides discovering what the fortress has to offer, another highlight of your visit will definitely be a stunning flight demonstration by the historic State Falconry Center. Primarily, they show domestic birds of prey in free flight. You will also get access to the Austrian Falconry Museum, which is currently hosting the “Where Eagles Dare” exhibition in the Pump Vaults. Don't miss out on the interactive “The Legend Of Jack, Witches and Wizards in Salzburg” exhibition, nor the exhibition on the architectural history of the fortress. Bring your kids along to explore the fortress grounds, and take them on a fun riddle rally.
