At the entrance of the Gastein valley 60 m over the access road on the Klammstein is Klammstein castle, probably the area’s oldest, historical building. The earliest settlement of the valley began here. Many famous lineages expanded this castle for the protection of the valley and its residents. Until the 16th century, the headquarters of mining and jurisdiction were found here.
In the following centuries, the no longer used castle became dilapidated. In 1972, the main tower of Klammstein castle was renovated and today houses a museum, which you can visit.

A special kind of natural landmark. The strange rock formations and the wonderful stalactite and sinter deposits will make this visit an exceptional experience. The cave’s name "Entrische Kirche" (eerie cave) was first mentioned in records in 1428. In the 16th and 18th centuries, the cave served the Lutherans coming to Gastein valley as a secret meeting place. On the occasion of the 500 yr. celebration of Martin Luther, a Protestant memorial in the cave in the “bat dome” was consecrated in 1983 in an ecumenical service. It is unique in its own way and every year in September serves as an atmospheric place for an ecumenical church service.
The cave is also a "place of power". Many visitors can feel the positive earth energies.
