Fascinating Art and Culture
Take a stroll through Styria’s past and present on the Castle Road, a charming destination the whole year round. Numerous castles and palaces entice you to go on a voyage of discovery. The old walls of these powerful strongholds and fortifications are reliable witnesses of a great past.
A tour through the Museum in the Old Arsenal in Bad Radkersburg, which originates from the 16th century, is like taking a walk through history. It starts off in prehistoric and early-historic times, largely still in the dark, and ends with possible future scenarios for the population of the town and its surrounds. The museum is home to an extensive assortment of sometimes incredibly valuable artefacts, such as Europe’s largest self-contained guild chest collection, complete with original documents.
The town-, tobacco- and "Kruzitürkenmuseum" museums are housed in the Pfeilburg Museum in Fürstenfeld. The latter recounts the story, over eleven different rooms, of the history of the "Town on the Borders". The word "Kruzitürken" derives from an old curse word, which refers to the dual attacks inflicted on East Styria by the Turks and Kurucs.
