Schloss Landeck castle – Ruine Kronburg ruins

The beautiful intermediate family bike tour has its starting point at Schloss Landeck castle, which is used as a cultural centre hosting events, and takes you to the idyllic place of pilgrimage Kronburg. The 22 kilometre ride to the Kronburg ruins is certainly worth it and gives you an insight into life in Tirol during the Middle Ages. A section of the four-hour ride is on the Via Claudia Augusta, an ancient transport route, meaning cyclists can follow in the footsteps of the Romans. From Landeck, the Innradweg cycle path takes you to Schönwies. Shortly before arriving in Schönwies the path leads up to the Kronburg ruins, where you can stop off for a drink and a snack at the Gasthof Kronburg. The pilgrimage church next to the Gasthof Kronburg is also worth visit.

  • Located directly next to the Via Claudia Augusta is the picturesque Schloss Landeck castle. Earl von Ulten had it built on a majestic rock above the Inn river during the first half of the 13th century and it was later extended by Earl Meinhard II von Tirol-Görz.
  • The museum "Bleiben oder Gehen“ shows the vivid history of the Tiroler Oberland. This local history museum will take you on a journey back in time and tells the story of previous generations and their struggle for survival. Stories from this period are told in Schloss Landeck castle.
  • Explore the impressive place of pilgrimage Kronburg and the ruins of the same name, perched high on the top of a rock face. Kronburg fortress was built in the 14th century by the Starkenberger family, one of the most powerful aristocratic families in Tyrol. In 1985 it was restored and it is today very popular with visitors.
