Auf den Spuren der Römer bei Erlstätt

hiking tour

On a hike in the moraine hills around Erlstätt, you will notice the many grain fields, which are rather rare in the foothills of the Alps, where dairy farming is the main activity. On the one hand, this is due to the damp and cool mountain climate and, on the other hand, to the poor soil conditions.

Tour description:

However, near Erlstätt there is very fertile agricultural land, which was already known to the Romans. Which is why they settled here and built their country estates (villas). Therefore, finds from Roman times have been and continue to be discovered during agricultural work. The sites are not accessible, but the finds such as the remains of mosaic floors, coins, pottery or jewelery can be admired in the Roman Museum next to the Grabenstätter town hall.
