Heimschuher Round North No. 4

Open
A beautiful hike through wonderful forests, meadows and through the wine trail of the Silberberg technical school.
The Heimschuher Basin, which was formed by the erosion of the Sulm River south of the Sausal, was a barren alluvial landscape in early times. It was hardly suitable for settlement activities, and so the first remains of settlement by the Illyrians can be found on the Königsberg to the west of the village. A ring wall and isolated tumuli indicate this. The Roman road that connected Flavia Solva with the provincial capital Virunum also led westwards along the southern edge of the Heimschuher basin. That is why today's parish church is not, as it seems, out of the way, but was built on the edge of this traffic route. Old wayside crosses and Roman-era burial grounds still mark the course of this road today. Its documented history began more than 1000 years ago when the German King Otto I (936 - 973) donated his possessions between Sulm and Laßnitz and from the Murebene to the Koralpe to the Archbishopric of Salzburg.
