Straßburg

Straßburg
Straßburg, seen from the churchyard of Lieding.

"Burg Straßburg", towers over the valley. It was built from 1147 on by the Bishops of Gurk and served as their residence until November 1767, when an earthquake ruined Straßburg. Between castle and town is the Maria Loretto chapel from 1650. Located in the town center is the parish church St. Nikolaus.
