Hohenwang

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Check out this aerial view of a well-known Austrian fortress ruin, compliments of contributor ClearSky.  It's called Hohenwang Castle, and it's located in the municipality of Langenwang in the state of Styria.  The original fortification dates to the 12th century.  It was later strengthened and became part of a line of fortifications across Styria that served to protect Habsburg lands during the long periods of time when the heart of Europe was under continual threat from Ottoman forces to the south.
