  • What a great way to welcome the holiday season properly! The castle hosts this special little Christmas market on the first two weekends in December. As there is a funicular (3.50EUR per roundtrip) ta...  more »

  • Amazing fortress sits on the top of the hill. I highly recommend take a 20 min forest trail to get you up the castle rather than the lift. Its very nice and refreshing easy walk.
  • Smaller castle but still an excellent place to visit especially for young children. Although highly touted in the area, the place is not as touristy or crowded so the experience is still very much enjoyable. Walk around the well maintained grounds and visit the exhibits. The inner areas of the castle are only accessible during the guided tour which is included in the price of the ticket. The falconry show was probably the highlight for many and the birds were just flying around freely. As many have mentioned, the guided tour is conducted in German and you'll have to grab an audio guide for other languages. Tips: Try to grab the early bird tickets which are discounted and includes everything including the funicular up to the castle. Bring along a pair of earphones so you can connect to the audio guide without holding it up like a telephone. Bring your own drinks and snacks too since the café was quite pricey.
  • Good trek up to the castle. The tour is very informative and end at the top of the bell tower with absolutely stunning view of the Alps and the Werfen town. Must visit!
  • Strongly recommended for everyone who likes this kind of castle/fortress. I love this one !
  • Must visit. The funicular and castle visit is combined. So if you have Budapest card, you can use it once for both.
