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.  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.

A great event, which is a lot of fun and is highly recommended. The only strange thing was that the cashier didn't know how to deal with the booked online tickets via GetyourGuide. Actually, everything should go faster because of this, but we had to wait longer and stopped other guests. It's a good thing that everyone took it with humor... We booked a guided tour of the castle because it wasn't included in the price. The bird of prey demonstration was particularly nice.
