Former fortresses and castle ruins

Former fortresses and castles in the Danube region

You are interested in the history of the Danube region in Upper Austria? Then you definitely should discover the former fortresses and castle ruins. In some of these you can participate in guided tours but when visiting the ruins, you discover those facilities by yourself and enjoy breath-taking views on the Danube area. There are also more fortresses and ruins along the Danube which are in private ownership and are therefore not freely accessible. The former fortresses and ruins are listed according to the course of the Danube.
