Gmünd in Kärnten - Burg Gmünd

Gmünd in Kärnten - Burg Gmünd
The ruins of the Burg Gmünd (Castle Gmuend) tower over the town.

For seven years the castle was held by troops of Hungarian King Matthias Corvinus during the Austrian-Hungarian War. The infamous troops looted and plundered the area and were dubbed "Renner und Brenner" locally.

During the Carinthian Peasant Revolt in 1478, the castle was besieged, though not captured. It got restored and enlarged but devastated by a fire in 1886.

Perfekter Bildaufbau. (Den Schatten könnte man evtl. noch ein bisserl aufhellen).
