Erlebnis Burgbau Friesach: a historical experiment

Erlebnis Burgbau Friesach: a historical experiment
In Friesach, the oldest city in Carinthia, three castles form a scenery on the west mountain slope over the historical place. To find out how such monumental structures were built in the Middle Ages, we are now building a castle following the old methods. Construction workers operate without any modern tools, without engines and electricity, only man and animal power as well as natural building materials such as wood, stone, lime, and water.


TIP – There are many paths to the medieval city of Friesach to the water-bearing town moat as well as to the Petersberg castle.
