Hochosterwitz Castle

Located in the small village of Hochosterwitz which is a 20 minute drive to the north east of Klagenfurt, Hochosterwitz castle is a stunning piece of medieval architecture and is considered one of Austria’s finest examples remaining.

The castle perches high on-top of a dolomite rock over 600m above sea level and can be seen for miles around on a clear day.

Constructed around 860, Hochosterwitz has lasted for ages and has been involved in various rebellions and civil wars.

A walk through the 14 gates leading up to the castle is fascinating while you can enter parts of the actual building and see displays of armour, weapons and paintings.
