Culture and sights

Entrance to the Steinwandklamm
  • Steinwandklamm : In 1884 the gorge ( location ) was made accessible to visitors and opened on June 8th of the same year with the participation of more than 600 participants from Vienna. The Austrian Tourist Club (Ö.TK) Triestingtal built a via ferrata in 1927. The sentence “We hike in the emperor's footsteps” arose from the fact that Emperor Franz Joseph was probably the most famous hiker in the gorge. It was pretty much destroyed in WWI and WWII . Today secured paths and bridges lead to the Türkenloch ; The inhabitants of the Triesting Valley are said to have hidden there during the second Turkish siege , but after the discovery by the Turks they were all killed by rising smoke.
  • Parish church: The parish church Maria Magdalena is located in the middle of the village and is partially surrounded by the former cemetery wall. In 1683 it was destroyed by the Turks and rebuilt by the Minorites in Pottenstein . In 1782 Furth was raised to an independent parish. The building is a low baroque central structure with a rectangular nave and a cross-oval dome. The massive east tower with a steep hipped roof dates from the 15th and 16th centuries. The ceiling painting in the dome with the theme "Jesus and the adulteress" is signed Franz Xaver Dobler 1795.


Most of the area is forest. Forestry and hunting are therefore important. Furth is a village with Most Mostheurigen and natural juice production setting Countryside drink Krenn KG.
