Hohenwerfen Castle

Bygone times

Hohenwerfen Castle, more than 900 years old, is enthroned on the steep rocky hill high above the Salzach Valley. During a visit to the medieval walls, you will not only learn interesting facts about life in earlier times, but you can also watch the impressive bird of prey show at the historic State Falconry. Falcons, vultures, eagles and other native birds of prey show off their flying skills several times a day and provide insights into the centuries-old art of falconry.
