Lovely place to stop for a light lunch or fika. Plenty of parking, on a pretty lake, but we didn't find a toilet. Dog friendly and nice atmosphere and monastery ruins to see.

Lovely cafe by the lake. We stopped for lunch -- a small, but elegant selection of sandwiches of which my family had one each and all were well satisfied. When we left, we found our car wouldn't start. Maria helped us contact someone to help and averted our emergency. She was our guardian angel!

Perfect stop for a fresh sallad or a healthy sandwich or a coffee and cake. Beautiful situated by a lake where it is possible to go for a swim. Gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy free options available. Delicious sallad adapted to suit food allergies.

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.
