FELDKIRCH AND THE SCHATTENBURG CASTLE MUSEUM
This gorgeous town is definitely worth a visit for those who decide to spend their holidays on the shores of the nearby Lake Constance.
A border town nestled among green highlands, Feldkirch has always been an important economic, political and military crossroads, attracting artists, scientists and writers.
During the First and Second World Wars, many fleeing characters stopped here, including James Joyce, Arthur Conan Doyle and Thomas Mann.
Feldkirch is dominated by the massive medieval fortress of Schattemburg, with its Gothic-style rooms and furnishings and a museum containing collections of historic weapons, locks and other traditional objects.
Medieval charm, a gothic Castel and a typical restaurant, what's else!!
Its old town is perfectly preserved, so you have the impression of returning to magical medieval charm, with its historic streets, frescoed gates and numerous city towers.
For lovers of local cuisine, we recommend the characteristic restaurant in Schattemburg Castle, where you can enjoy a real-life "Wienerschnitzel".
