Hohenwerfen Fortress

Hohenwerfen Fortress

A trip into the past of the Salzburg archbishops

The medieval fortress of Hohenwerfen towers proudly and impressively above the Salzach valley. In the 11th century, Salzburg's then prince archbishop began building the fortress, which was developed into an important bulwark.

Today, Hohenwerfen Fortress offers a very special attraction: the bird of prey show provides an insight into the art of falconry. You can experience this impressive show from May to October. Medieval festivals, knights' dinners and spooky night tours complete the range of experiences at the castle near your holiday resort of St. Johann im Pongau.
