Mauterndorf in the 13th century – historic roots
The former toll-castle in Mauterndorf dates back to the 13th century and served as summer residence for the prince archbishops of Salzburg. Today the castle is the picturesque background of the annual medieval fair in Mauterndorf. The castle is located on a cliff at the north west of Mauterndorf. In the middle ages, the castle was a toll station – and the surrounding village of Mauterndorf rose in importance as a market place and centre of commerce.
