    The Veitsberg (1160 m) is a mountain in Carinthia. It lies close together with the Gösseberg (1171 m) at the village Liemberg halfway between Sankt Veit an der Glan and Feldkirchen.At its top is a chapel with wooden barrel vault, which was mentioned in 1580 in a document. Finds from Roman times - z. For example, a sanctuary attributed to the god Mithras in St. Urban - but can close to a possibly earlier use as a place of worship. The small church was rebuilt after a fire in 1950, but the statue of St. Veit, after which the mountain is named, is missing. [1]The Veitsberg is the third and highest mountain in the Vierbergelauf, the church is three times clockwise circled around and then the bell is rung to make a wish come true.On the eastern slope of the Veitsberg is the ruins Liemberg, which was first mentioned in 1167 and since at least 1688 is abandoned. At the foot of the mountain is the castle Liemberg from the 16th century.Source: Wikipedia.org
