"Hilltop Castle"

The fortress Hohenwerfen Castle stands guard over the green Salzach Valley from its hilltop perch. The Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg had the castle built in 1075 to protect the valley from Henry IV's German forces. After Gebhard's time, the castle was used by the rulers of Salzburg for various purposes, including as a hunting retreat, for military use and also at times as a prison. Today, the castle is open as an adventure castle and offers guided tours of the weaponry used during wars.
