Schauenstein Castle ruins

Lookout tower, Ruins, Scenic lookout


A visit to the historic ruin can be perfectly combined with a hike along the “Schauensteinweg” route. It starts in Altpölla, and leads to the ruins via Wegscheid am Kamp, before heading back to Altpölla via Krug (12 km). The easiest way to get to Schauenstein is from the car park in the village of Krug. A hiking path (1 km) leads directly to the ruins. 

The ruins are accessible at any time. You will need a key to enter the keep, which has been converted into a lookout post. You can obtain the key from 3953 Pölla, Krug No. 18 (Haus bei der Kapellle), or by calling +43 664 145 1527
