Goldenstein Ruins

...remains of an "eagle’s nest"

To the north of the village of St. Daniel im Gailtal, at an altitude of around 1000m, lie the Goldenstein Ruins. This ancient fortress takes its name from the booming gold mining industry in this region that dates back to the Venetian-Celtic Period.

Today the gold ore has been exhausted and there remain only few traces of the Goldenstein Fortress. A circular hiking trail leads around the ruins.
