The old fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Investiture Quarrel by order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark, at the top of a rock 155 meters high. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the antiroi Rudolph of Rheinfelden, had three large castles extended to protect the archdiocese of Salzburg against the forces of King Henry IV of the Holy Roman Empire.         [ Wikipedia ]
