Braunau

Our Recommendation

Braunau

A truly fabulous experience

Dive into the varied history of the town and its inhabitants - being home to one of Europe’s last well-preserved medieval bathhouses, one of the oldest original bell foundries, the former imperial stronghold of Ranshofen Castle and the “Heimathaus” museum of the Danube Swabians who settled in the town after 1945, Braunau offers a rich cultural spectrum spanning all epochs.

Steyr

Our Recommendation

Steyr

1000 Years of Romanticism

Around 980 the Ottakar margraves in Styria built today’s Lamberg Castle. The settlement around the castle and the parish church are first mentioned in official documents in 985. In 1186, the town fell into the ownership of the Babenbergers.

Lienz

Our Recommendation

Lienz

A Little Bit of Italy between Drau and Isel

A lively settlement since the Bronze Age in the valley floor between the Drau and Isel rivers. Excavations of the Roman town of Aguntum (A.D. 50–450).

The original settlement was expanded by the Counts of Gorizia in the 11th and 12th centuries who built, among others, Bruck Castle and the Carmelite monastery.
