Hohenwerfen Castle in Bavaria.


In the afternoon, yesterday, we took the train to Werfen to see the Hohenwerfen Castle. It was only about 45 miles from Salzburg but the train took an hour to reach Werfen. We had hoped to get a taxi or bus up to the castle but none were available so we walked about 2.5 kms up to the castle. It was well worth the long walk as the surrounding mountains were snow-covered and the photos just can't do the scenery justice.
  It was a long day but we really enjoyed seeing this castle as it is depcted in the film, "Where Eagles Dare".. We haven't become tired of seeing the Alps or castles yet as it is so different to home.
Hugs, Jan Mac
