The small town of Radstadt grew up around a 13thcentury fortress on the banks of the Enns river. Its wealth hailed from its propitious location on the road to Venice, and its monopoly position in the wine trade. Radstadt also had a licence to stock iron and salt. Its medieval fortifications, built by the archbishops of Salzburg, have remained intact. The surrounding area boasts many small, beguiling castles, including Renaissance Schloss Tandalier, southwest of the town. Schloss Larchen, in the centre of town, shows some traces of original, 13thcentury architecture; today it houses a regional museum. Environs: East of Bischofshofen runs Radstadter Tauernstrasse, one of the most scenic roads in the Alps. A vast skiing area extends on both sides. The Rossbrand (1,770 m/ 5,807 ft), rising north of Radstadt and accessible by car via the Rossbrand Panorama Street, offers astonishing views of more than 150 alpine summits on a clear day.
