Väga väga hea kontsert?Uku Suviste nn..tõusis minu silmis. Kirik on huvitav, õpetaja tasemel, alati huvitav ja õpetlik kuulda sõnumit. Olen olnud külaliseks ristsetel ja ka viimsele teele saatmisel. Kiidan õpetajat, alati meeldejääv ja omanäoline kõne.

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.
