    Fort Claudia (1645) - The strategic importance of the mountain ridge opposite Ehrenberg had long been known. He already played an important role in the reconquest of Ehrenberg in 1546.The history
    An attachment was omitted due to lack of money. It was still like that in 1632 when the Swedes moved to Ehrenberg. Only years later, from 1639 to 1645, the Fort Claudia, which bears the name of this princess, was built under the Tyrolean regent Archduchess Claudia.
    In 1703 Fort Claudia was taken by the Bavarians, who initiated the occupation of Ehrenberg from here. In 1782 the fortress was abandoned. The old fortress was still inhabited in the 19th century and fell into disrepair after it was abandoned.

    The little brother (or little sister?) Of Ehrenberg is not quite so sublime, but at least it offers just as beautiful a view. You can also connect the two straightway via the Highline 179.

    Not as spectacular as the Schlossberg or the ruin Ehrenberg but also very worth seeing.

    The ruin of Fort Claudia is located directly on the Highline suspension bridge and should be viewed in any case. No entry, etc. Just go and marvel ...

    After crossing the Highline bridge, the fort Claudia is reached in about 10 minutes and is definitely worth visiting this place / ruin.

    After crossing the bridge it is only a short detour to the fort.
    Also very worth seeing!

    Great restored fort with explanations to the history and the individual areas.Impressive what already at that time was driven for an effort to defend. And how more or less that worked ...

    Definitely worth it if you already have the ticket for the Highline 179 :)

    Nice hike from Heiterwang (Karlift car park) up to Fort Claudia. The first part goes up continuously on a well-paved path. From the junction from the Mühlenrundweg back down a little to Fort Claudia, however, it goes on a stony or forest path, sometimes steeply downhill. From some points you have a fantastic view of the Ehrenberg and Schlossberg fortifications.
    Fort Claudia is then a good resting place with a lot of information about the now well-preserved ruins of the fort. From here you can also make a short detour to Highline 179.
    After the rest, it goes back through the forest or stony path quite steeply downhill. Sturdy shoes are required here.
    After crossing underneath the B179, it is easy to return to the starting point at the Karlift.

    Is located directly at the bridge. A little detour that is worthwhile. Granted, the adrenaline level isn't as high as on the bridge, but it's still worth a visit

    One of the many castles that can be visited here via the bridge.

    I was thrilled at how wonderfully everything has been restored here and is still going to be.

    Fort Claudia was never completed by the fortress construction commander, who was only 30 years old, and has numerous serious errors, such as the height and format of the loopholes.

    If you go over the Highline, the castle is not far away and definitely worth a visit.
