Danmarks sødeste graver. Asger har virkelig været så sød og hjælpsom vedrørende grav og bisættelse. Så mange tak Asker for hjælpen. Hilsen May

Nice church and not least a pastor. There was room for both being solemn, as well as making fun and using humor when it fitted. Lovely fresh breath, for a session that may otherwise feel very long. We were sitting right in front of a pillar, so we had a hard time seeing baptism. On the contrary, they had put a smart TV screen so that we did not miss anything. Really good experience, on a nice day.

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
