Hochosterwitz Castle is situated on a 175 metre-high Dolomite rock between Sankt Georgen am Längsee and Magdalensberg and represents probably the most important landmark in Carinthia. All around the rocks there is a route protected by 14 gates. A potential attacker should have taken all the gates and in the same time countered the attacks of the defender from all sides. That's why the fortress has been besieged but has never been attacked throughout its history. Nowadays Hochosterwitz Castle can easily be reached: a steep and shaky lift will drive you up to the castle. Taking that lift is a sensational adventure you never forget! Once on the top of the mountain you can enjoy an uninterrupted panoramic sight or visit an interesting museum. The Austria Bus team will be happy to help you organize trips and excursions to Hochosterwitz Castle by bus or by minibus or to organize a complete sightseeing tour program in Carinthia or even in Austria including the visit of the Hochosterwitz fortress.
