Medieval Burg Hochosterwitz
Austria’s most important and famous medieval castle has been standing proud to the east of St. Veit since 860 A.D.. The castle was captured by the Khevenhullers and still belongs to that family today. It was enlarged to defend itself against Turkish invaders in 1570.
The burgweg, which is a steep road to the castle, has over 14 defensive gates. Which is probably why the castle has never been captured by a foe. Once you reach the castle you’ll find a cute, little chapel that has ceiling paintings dating back to 1570. The church also has a high altar dating back to 1729.
The Grossglockner Road
