Radstadt

Our Recommendation

Radstadt

A Fine Old Town in the Mountains

»Rastat« was first mentioned in documents in 1074. Due to its strategically important location on the old Roman road from Aquileia over the Radstadt Tauern to Juvavum (Salzburg), Radstadt received town rights under Archbishop Rudolf von Hohenegg in 1289.

Bad Radkersburg

Our Recommendation

Bad Radkersburg

Under the Rules of Old Trade Guilds

Trade and crafts have always played an important role in the town on the river Mur. Various trade guilds dominated the economic and cultural life and laid the foundation stone of today’s Bad Radkersburg.

The 17 preserved guild coffres alone bear witness to the old art of crafts. Arcade courtyards, magnificent buildings, the unique museum and the medieval city walls bestow a Mediterranean character to the town.
