History enthusiasts can take a trip to the impressive ruins of Glanegg, situated on a steep hillside in the middle of a sunny valley.

After Hochosterwitz and Landskron Fortress, it is the third largest military complex in Carinthia. The castle was first mentioned in 1121 and throughout its history, its Romanesque core has been influenced by many architectural styles, from Romanticism to the Renaissance.
