Friesach is the oldest town in Carinthia and the best-preserved medieval town in Austria. Not only does it date back to 880, but it still has an intact moat, an intact city wall. And of course, several historical churches and ruins. It quickly became one of my favourite towns in all of Austria. Travelers seeking medieval charm should add it to their bucket list.
