Across the bottom of the Mur valley, on a steeply rising rock, is the mighty, once five-towered, fortification, and Styria's highest castle ruin. Since 2000, the castle association has been maintaining the ruin in its current condition and it is now open to the public again. Situated 1,209 metres above the Mur valley and the highest castle ruin in Styria, the former fortification tells of times of great power. The castle once boasted five mighty round towers with battlements; the actual stronghold stood five stories high.
Let's go on a treasure hunt: There is one of several geocaching points there.
