Following the Romans ...
Only about 25 minutes away from us you can visit the ruins of the Roman settlement Aguntum. The wide open area (30,000 m² excavation area) and the adjacent museum show the exciting history of the Noricum people of Laiancer, the province of Noricum and the municipality of Claudium Aguntum.
As early as the 3rd century A. D., Lavant, which is only 2 km away, was more heavily settled, as the high altitude offered strategic advantages in defence. Today, for example, a medieval gate, various Roman houses and an early Christian bishop's church can be visited in the Lavantaler Kirchbichl. At the foot of the church you will find the "Aufbahrungshalle", a small museum.Details
The strategic advantages of defence can also be seen at the Burgbichl, which is situated at an altitude of more than 700 m above sea level on the southern side of the Drava river, almost opposite Bergh am BERG. The excavations at Burgbichl began in 2016 and the 1.5 m high stone wall, a work site, foundations of an early Christian church as well as numerous remains of wall plastering leave hope for even more.Details
for gourments ...
From mid-June to mid-September the Ochsnerhütte is open and offers wonderful products. Some of the Leppner cows spend their summer holidays on the alpine pastures and provide the basis for delicious butter, creamy curds, fresh buttermilk or spicy cheese.
At 1.618m above sea level you will find the year-round opend guesthouse „Bergheimat“. Except on Tuesday (rest day) Nicole and Will spoil hungry hikers with fine food. In good weather, you can enjoy sitting on the sun terrace and in winter in the dining room by the cosy, warm tiled stove.
If you don't feel like cooking and don't want to get out of the cosy holiday apartment, then perhaps the Bergh-Cuisine is the right choice for you. For our guests, we serve vegetarian (if you like vegan) menus with seasonal and regional ingredients, which are tasty and satisfying.
