Radstadt

Radstadt
Radstadt - "the old town in the mountains" - lies in the Upper Enns valley, 55 kilometres south of Salzburg, in an area of Celtic and Roman settlement.

History
The first mention of Radstadt dates back as far as 1074 and it was recognised as a town in 1289 - the only town in the mountains in the Archbishopric of Salzburg.

Due to its strategically important position, in mediaeval times it was a flourishing trading centre. In the Peasants War of 1526/27 the town was besieged by the rebel forces of Michael Gaismair, and its determined defence was recognised by the grant of special rights (Grosser Freiheitsbrief) by Archbishop Matthaus Lang and the motto Allzeit getreu - 'Ever Loyal'.
During the first half of the nineteenth century Radstadt was occupied by Austrian, Bavarian and French garrisons, coming finally into Austrian possession in 1861, together with Salzburg.

The Fortifications
The thirteenth century walls are of unique symmetrical design and include three watch towers, Hexen, Teich and Kapuzinerturm, built between 1527 and 1535 and all in a good state of preservation. Six routes radiate from the city centre - Scheikstiege, Metzgerloch, Baderstiege, Sparkassenpassage, Stöcklloch and Friedhof - and the 'Millenniumspfad' walk along the walls, ending in the city square, guides the visitor, in 1000 steps, through a thousand years of history on information panels.

Castle Lerchen, dating from 1298, and the Kapuzinerturm tower, house the local heritage museum in which the history, sacred art, culture and geology of the area are displayed. Both are open daily during the summer season; the tower museum is closed in the winter months. Of the three churches, the Kapuzinerkirch has a notable baroque high altar.

Radstadt Today
