Once the strongest fortress in the west

Riegersburg myths, adventures and scary stories entwine around the impressive landmark of south-eastern Styria. Riegersburg Castle, which has never been conquered during its centuries of existence, was once considered the strongest fortress in the West. Today it is a popular destination for excursions. Perched on the towering basalt tufa rock of a former volcano, it offers a magnificent view over the surrounding gentle hilly landscape with the forests, vineyards, meadows and fields of the market town named after it.
