Festenburg Fortress

The medieval “Vöstenburg” fortress has belonged to Vorau Monastery since 1616. In 1700 the fortified castle was converted into a “monastery castle”. The fortified tower was transformed into a church tower, and the knights’ hall reshaped into a church, with monastery painter Hackhofer decorating it with superb frescoes.
