Castle Ensemble "Burgenwelt Ehrenberg"
in the Alps of Austria



From a 13th century medieval castle to an 18th century fort, the Castle Ensemble Ehrenberg in Tyrol has four fortifications to showcase.

To make the view and the history of Ehrenberg for everyone, the Castle Ensemble was extended by two attraction, which blend smoothly into the Alps; the new, fully automatic inclined lift "Ehrenberg Liner"
and the bridge "Highline 179".
The suspension bridge with its proud 406 meters in length, may officially call itself the world's longest of its kind in Tibet Style. Take a look at the four castles we visited in 2019:
