History of the Habsburgs

The main chapter in the history of the Habsburgs in Further Austria

In the region which extends from the Vosges via Lake Constance to the Tyrol and which was formally called the “Österreichisches Vorland“ or “Further Austria” the traveller will discover a coat of arms here, a corner pillar there or a coping stone with an engraved date and countless ruined chapels, fortresses, castles, churches and monasteries. They are all important witnesses to the Habsburg dynasty which shaped a deciding epoch for the entire region.
