Mmmmmm nothing special, a country with the FORST company that is the host. Well immersed in the context though. Too bad that at the brewery shop, the bottles cost more than at the supermarket. Patience, I drink them anyway

Wonderful both in summer and in winter. Good beer good food fast and friendly service. Adjusted price. Great

Quality that has gradually reduced over time and is not worth the price. Beer is good. They feed you quickly and hurry you to leave the place. Never again

It has a very ancient history (it seems to date back to twelve hundred...) and it is famous for having hosted the famous minstrel poet Oswald von Wolkenstein, one of the best known medieval Tyrolean characters, in his prisons for months. Today it is owned by the Forst brewery and is used for events. It is not normally open to visitors.

This spontaneous decision was a very nice thing... Nicola masters the art of excellent service... you fall in love with this historic place, and with the food, we were served a delicious tartar prepared on site at the table with Hennesy XO Conjac. ..

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.
