After staying in this small city for more than three years, I thought of coming to the city's art gallery to take a peek at the city's art and history. During the hundreds of years of development, this small city has hardly been affected by the wave of industrialization. As time goes by, the city still maintains its original style and state.

Nice architectural building with cozy cafeteria. A good escape for the tourist that wants a break.

At the time of our visit only two smaller exhibitions were available, which made the museum appear really small.

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.
