Hochosterwitz Castle Wheelchair Accessible Tours

Built on top of a rock massif, it is one of the most extraordinary medieval Castles in the country and is famous for never having been conquered.

Hochosterwitz Castle wheelchair accessible tours, is one of the most extraordinary and impressive examples of medieval architecture in Austria.

The strategic position on the top of a mountain relief makes this structure visible from more than 30 kilometers away.

Look at all the methods used to keep enemies at bay and you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back in time.

To access the heart of the castle, invaders had to pass through its 14 doors one by one, just like in a video game.

No one has ever succeeded in the feat and, according to legend, in the entire history of this imposing structure only the first four doors were conquered by enemies.

Venture along the winding avenue that leads to the castle and study the various doors, each of which posed a different obstacle to the attackers.

Imagine enemy armies grappling with boiling oil, hidden spears or large drawbridges.

As you explore the Castle, let your gaze wander over the vast panorama that extends to the peaks of the Austrian Alps.

Take advantage of the trip to Sankt Veit an der Glan and the visit to Hochosterwitz Castle to enter the picturesque little church that stands in the courtyard.
