Places of Interest

The epithet “Ancient Mountain Town“ reflects the fact that the history of Radstadt goes back to the 4th century BC. Traces of the Celtic and Roman settlement can only be found in the local Heimatmuseum, but the Middle Ages still dominate the townscape in some parts of Radstadt. The nightwatchman of Radstadt in his traditional livery and with his lantern tells the visitors sagas and stories and thus takes them back into the Middle Ages. Traditional customs are reflected by farmers markets and craft fairs, the Almabtrieb (ceremonial driving down of cattle from the mountain pastures into the valley in autumn), and the Kirchtag (fair). During the Bauernherbst (harvest festival) over 2,000 events take place throughout the Province of Salzburg each year.
