Site Feldkirch

Basic Information
Identifier OE_06003
Site Name Feldkirch
Description In the surrounding area of Feldkirch and Altenstadt multiple remains from the Bronze and Iron Age were determined during the last 80 years. Two were remains of burning activity - in the lowland "in der Grütza" and one at the railway station "Amberg". Furthermore traces of settlements were found on the hilltop "Alteburga" by castle "Amberg" and in the lowland "Gossacker". In the southern part of the site "Carinagasse" a profane deposit consisting of four half-lenticular copper cast cakes from the Late Bronze Age could be determined. One further historic sight is e.g. the town "Feldkirch" itself - Feldkirch has one of the best preserved medieval cityscapes of Vorarlberg. The town was built around 1200 at the same time as the Schattenburg and features a geometric grid system. Further sights are e.g. the already mentioned "Schattenburg", the ruin "Tosters" or castle "Amberg".
