On the way to the landmark of Hartberg's old town and up the 99 steps to the dream view
The Ringkogel is Hartberg's local mountain and the Ringwarte is the town's landmark. Both point out that we are in Celtic country, but the Romans were not far away either. With this tour you will explore their mysterious history.
There are 99 steps up the watchtower. Before you descend back into the old town, you should definitely climb the Ringwarte. The landmark of Hartberg is almost 110 years old and was built in 1906. There is so much to see at the top that you will have to look for a long time: Ah, the Hartberg region looks good!
Opening hours Ringwarte:
April - October all day (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays), closed in bad weather.
