Church, Fortress sights in Austria
- Sort by:
An excellent free map of town (available from the tourist office) has a detailed Burgenwanderweg (Castle Trail) plan that helps you explore the fortifications and churches. There are four medieval fortress ruins ranged along the hills rising above Hauptplatz to the west, all offering excellent views. The northernmost is Burg Geyersberg; the furthest south are the Virgilienberg ruins. The middle two (Rotturm and Petersberg) are the most easily visited from the centre, with lovely views from Peterskirche, accessible by paths ascending from the front of the Romanesque Stadtpfarrkirche, dating from AD 927.
