Tag des Denkmals 2008

Sep 29th, 2008 by admin | 0

Yesterday the Tag des Denkmals 2008 took place in various locations all over Austria. This year also Fürstenfeld took part in this event offering guided tours around the town’s historic fortification buildings. I decided to join the afternoon tour which started at the Pfeilburg which houses the city museum as well as a tobacco museum. After this we made our way via Ertlberg to the Kinderfreunde sports field and to Ungarbastei which is right next to the Eurospar supermarket and can be seen on the photo blow.

After having visited a private backyard we walked over to the former tobacco factory that was closed down in 2005 and has been deserted ever since. I had never been in there before and it’s really a fascinating and quite big area with beautiful buildings. I hope they will manage to renovate that in the near future and find a new purpose for it.

After having visited another private garden by the northern part of the former town wall we reached our last stop at the Mühlbastei where a bomb shelter form World War II can be found. It’s also only accessible through a private garden.

So this was a really interesting afternoon. Thanks a lot to Mr. Amtmann of the Museumsverein Fürstenfeld for the tour, which actually took almost double the time that was originally planned. But it was a unique chance to visit some places in the town that are normally closed to the public. You can see more photos in this set on Flickr.
