Believe it or not, but cemetery's are actually quite different round the world, differences which takes root in the culture of the respective countries and regions. Visiting a cemetery helps to get a better understanding of the people in and history of an area - and can actually be a great experience as a tourist - especially if you use Google translate to translate signs and headstones!

I think it's nice to come to the cemetery because it's always quiet and neatly cleaned up, rarely withered bouquets

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.
