Radstadt - main resort in the Enns Valley with historic old town

The old town in the mountains - charming mediaeval town

The 700 year old town of Radstadt was origingally a Roman settlement on the main north-south route. The name Radstadt comes from "Rastat" meaning resting place for waggoners. The whole plateau was fortified in the 13th century and our town - the only one in the mountains belonging to the Archbishopic of Salzburg to do so - received its town charter in 1289. Today you can still see parts of the Early Modern period town walls with Witches, Pond and Capuchin Towers.


Take a stroll along the town walls and feel the flair of bygone days. A guided tour with the Nightwatchman is particularly interesting. Life in mediaeval Radstadt is relived through ancient legends and gruesome tales.
