Fürstengräberweg Nr. 13 Variante a

Open
The hike to the Burgstallkogel is "experienced history" a direct encounter with the monuments of a past that cannot be accessed through written sources.
As early as the Hallstatt period (8th - 5th century BC), there was a settlement here covering about 20 hectares. The finds from this period point to the largest Hallstatt-period necropolis (= burial site) in the Eastern Alps, with around 3000 urn graves. The area was continuously inhabited.
