Magdalensberg is an archaeological site on the grounds of a former Celtic settlement, on which over the course of history a Roman merchant settlement was built, which grew into the political, administrative, religious and economic centre of Noricum – and this settlement can be considered the first capital of Austrian territory.

On an area of four hectares you will get to know a substantial part of the former settlement. The many finds give you an insight into life on the Magdalensberg 2,000 years ago. If you come here in the summer, you can take advantage of guided tours (but it’s best to phone in advance to make sure they are taking place) – but you can arrange a tour in advance for groups of at least 10 people at any time of the year.

For families, there’s a programme of puzzles and riddles to guide them through the park, with a little surprise waiting at the end.

Carinthia Card holders can benefit from free entry once a day.
