Fürstenfeld - The Town

Fürstenfeld: Rural charms in Eastern Styria

Fürstenfeld is a town of approximately 6,000 inhabitants in East Styria (Steiermark). It is the capital (Bezirkshauptstadt) of the district and the centre for education, trade and traffic - as well as regional administration.

Fürstenfeld itself is known for its ideal setting: It offers great access to the spa area of Styria (Steirisches Thermenland), the vineyards with many Buschenschank inns and other rural delights of south-eastern Austria. In terms of sightseeing attractions, Fürstenfeld has several interesting historic buildings; the city centre offers a great opportunity for a relaxed stroll, and there are the remains of a fortress.

A very important building is the Pfeilburg, a "castle" that is considered to be the oldest non-religious building of Fürstenfeld. In fact, the core of the Pfeilburg ranks among the oldest Medieval buildings in all of Styria. Fürstenfeld has an unusual city hall: The Fürstenfeld Rathaus can be found in a tower from 1565, called Grazer Tor.

The other two main attractions are the Landesfürstliche Burg Schloss am Stein, a castle with origins that date back to 1170. It was built by Margrave Ottokar IV. The Pfeilburg is linked to a Tobacco Museum, which shows how important tobacco was for the local agriculture. The Ungarbastei is a 16th century fortress; it was built according to designs by the Italian military engineer Domenico dell′Allio after 1596.

“B'soffener Türk “ – The drunk Turk

In front of the town hall there is a sculpture by Prof. Hans Mauracher that commemorates an incident during the war between the Hungarian King Matthias Corvinus and Emperor Frederick III.

In 1480 Hungarian troops advanced against Fürstenfeld. The Emperor sent his Croat troops to help defend the town. On the way from Graz to Fürstenfeld the Croats decided to visit a few wine cellars and got drunk. As a result, the majority of them were killed by the Hungarians. So the "b'soffene Turk" is actually a "b'soffener Croat".

The Legends and Fable path is a footpath starting at the Pfeilburg in Fürstenfeld and leads through the legendary Buchenwald (beech tree forest) to the parish church at Altenmarkt. The trail was established in 2005 as a themed trail.

Along this path there is information on the history of the spa capital Fürstenfeld and the environment.

The narrative also delves into myth, tales and the legendary worlds of the beech forest. During the “expedition” you will be joined by beech forest elves and dwarfs that live in the caves and crevices of the beech forest. It is said that they have often helped and sometimes richly rewarded the good people on the path.

It is rumored that Attila the Hun is buried in the riverbed of the Feistritzsattel.
