One of the most impressive castles in Carinthia is certainly Liebenfels, towering majestically on a rocky hill. It offers beautiful views of the Karawanken Mountains or the Carnic Alps. The roots of this castle date back to the 1300s. It had fallen into disrepair for a long time, but in 2021 extensive restoration work began and the castle was reopened to the public.
Among the biggest attractions of this place are the observation platform and the tallest medieval lookout tower in Carinthia. At the same time, you can visit a modern exhibition on the history of the castle, sit in the inner courtyard full of wooden deck chairs and benches or taste a culinary speciality. And if you want to spice up the experience, you can order an escape game through their website!
