Bad Radkersburg
From fortress to health resort. 
Border fortress
War and trade.

Located close to the border of Slovenia, Bad Radkersburg was intended as a barrier against Hungary. Due to the threat of the Turks, northern Italian builders built the fortifications in the 16th century. Today, the defensive curtain has been preserved almost completely. In the two world wars, the place was the scene of bitter fighting. The location on the Mur and other important trade routes, made Bad Radkersburg also an important trading center. Wine, honey, hungarian cattle, iron, salt and other goods changed hands here.
The historic center of Bad Radkersburg
Italian flair.

The two- and three-storey houses that surround the main square were once owned by wealthy merchants and nobles. The influence of the Italian builders can be seen at numerous points in the city - for example in the magnificent arcade courtyard of the so-called "Palais Herberstorff". In 1978, Bad Radkersburg was the only city in Austria awarded with the "European gold medal for historic preservation": from the Renaissance to Art Nouveau, all architectural styles are represented here. In 1978, the discovery and development of a thermal spring made Bad Radkersburg also a popular spa and tourist resort.
Museum in the old arsenal
The redesigned "Museum in the old arsenal" is located in the former scenic arsenal, which was built in 1588. The courtyard with its two-storey arcades is one of the most impressive in the whole city and again shows the influence of several Italian builders.
