    On the Schlossberg high above Pitten you can visit the artful mountain church, which is dedicated to Saint George. The baroque building dates from the 18th century and is surrounded by a wall - so it can be assigned to the fortified churches.

    A rare cave church with frescoes from the 13th century is hidden directly behind the mountain church. It is believed that the cave church was already used as a place of worship in pre-Christian times. You also have a spectacular view of the surroundings from here.

    06/06/2020 - I would classify it as one of the most beautiful mountain churches, plus the seeming view from above over the country.
