Feldkirch

Our Recommendation

Feldkirch

Jesters, Fine Wines and the Magic of History

The first settlements were established in the Bronze Age; the German name »Feldkirch« was for the first time mentioned in an inventory of possessions of 842: »Ecclesia sancti Petri ad Campos id est Feldkircha – St. Peter bei den Feldern church, that’s Feldkirch«.

Feldkirch Visit City

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«.

Judenburg Visit City

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.

Braunau Visit City

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.
