Autumn in Austria part 5 – Castle Hochosterwitz





The beautiful castle ‘Hochosterwitz’ is located 20 km north-east of the city of ‘Klagenfurt’ and was built on a 170 m high rock.
The castle is very old and was first mentioned in 860. It was a shelter for the local people during the Turkish invasion in the 11th and 12th century.
In the 16the century the castle was extended to its actual size with an armory and 14 fortified gates, each equipped with a different method of guarding the path.

Since the 16th century the castle was not changed.
