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.

Judenburg

Our Recommendation

Judenburg

Venetian Charm and Styrian Merchants

The former merchants’ settlement was an important trade centre between venice and vienna. The town preserved the Mediterranean charm from the old days of venetian traders.

Tradition and modernity form a harmonious symbiosis here and folklore finds ample space to unfold – on the farmers’ market, at folk music mornings in rustic inns or at the »Murtaler Autumn festival«.

Hallein

Our Recommendation

Hallein

Lebendige Kleinstadt mit Geschichte und Lebensfreude

Der Ort ist erstmals 1198 urkundlich nachweisbar, der Salzabbau bereits 1191. Die Stadterhebung erfolgte zwischen 1218 und 1232. Bekannt ist Hallein vor allem durch die Salzgewinnung und die historischen Funde aus der Zeit der Kelten.

Die alten Salinenhallen und das Salzbergwerk erinnern noch heute an eine Zeit, in der Salz nicht nur lebenswichtig war, sondern vor allem auch Geld und Macht bedeutete.
