Hohenwerfen Fortress. in Salzachtal Valley
Coming to our Hotel or just spending time in Fusch you can vary your stay by visiting the Salzach valley which delights at every step. It wonderfully rambles among alpine summits and is often a referance point for crucial tourist attractions. This concerns the area around Werfen, where by the river stands Hohenwerfen fortress surrounded by the Tennengebirge and Hagengebirge mountain range. It comes from 11thcentury when Abp. Gebhard had fortresses built to protect the estate. The fortress sits enthroned atop a rocky 113 m-high dome, which used to make it impregnable. We have no doubts that the fortress will enravish you. There must be a reason why it is put on almost every Salzburg postcard. If you are lucky, you will have a chance to take part in a festival or a knightly tournament. Everyday there are two displays of birds of prey – the first one before and the second one after noon. You will have no difficulties with finding the fortress. It takes 20 minutes from a parking. If you do not wear proper shoes, you?d better use a cable railway. To find more information visit: http://www.salzburg-burgen.at/de/werfen/erlebnisburg-hohenwerfen/index.htm
