The Castle of which you get an excellent unobstructed view from the train if you travel from Villach to Ljubljana (just when you cross the Drau river and sit on the left) used to be the seat of the Bamberg administration.

Villach was under Bamberg rule for 752 years until 1759 when the Empress Maria Theresia bought it back.

There is a castle chapel by the name of St. Heinrich and Kunigunde. I didn't see any entrance to it though.

Enter the castle courtyard where you will find an stone through and a well. In the back corner to your right you will find a tiny museum room which will show you some of the findings of the castle. It's free of charge (please close the door).
