Arnoldstein

carinthia arnoldsteinInhabitants: 7.000

The Carinthian village Arnoldstein is located in the three country corner of Austria, Italy and Slovenia, on the border of the Karawanken and Karnische Alps.

The name of the village Arnoldstein comes probably from "Arnold the knight", who was the founder of the abbey castle. There is an ancient tumbstone in the park museum of Klagenfurt, who shows Arnold the knight with his wife Mathilde.

The church in Arnoldstein looks like a simple one from outside. But if you enter the building you can see Gothic frescos from an outstanding quality which explain the art historical fame of the church. In the background you can see a piece of the monastery ruin.
