Staying at Hotel Schloss Gabelhofen is a great reason to explore the surrounding area. If you are interested in culture and history you should take a trip to the little historic city of Judenburg which is only a stone’s throw away from the hotel.
You will be amazed how Venetian Styria can look and feel! After all, Judenburg used to be an important trading post between Vienna and the Serenissima – another name for Venice – and has absorbed and retained this southern charm to this day. Folk culture, hospitality and more await you.
Taking a walk through Judenburg inevitably takes you past its “Stone Sentinel”, the city’s tower with its look-out 42 metres above ground. It’s Austria’s tallest free-standing tower, you know.
Don’t miss the city’s Parish Church and Jesuit Monastery which today houses a music and art school. And don’t forget to visit the Jesuit Church, either.
When strolling through what is today the district capital, you should also remember the following: Ask about the city’s market days and current festivals as there is always something going on. Apart from that, its charming bar scene and many artistic activities provide fun and action all year round.
Our special tip for all those who have a little more time: Book an individual city tour and make sure you don't miss any of the small details that make this place so enchanting. But please call ahead to secure your desired date.
Judenburg is looking forward to your visit – culturally enriching your stay in the Murtal region!
