"The castle of Hochosterwitz" Hochosterwitz by Manara

Hochosterwitz Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 7 photos

The hill of Burg Hochosterwitz has a peculiar shape, not high, but very steep. What makes it really unique is the castle, with its walls and battlements that have not changed much in the last 450 years.
