Author’s recommendation

After the tour, it is worth visiting the Aflenz earth station in Graßnitz. The earth station, which was put into operation in 1980, is one of the most important telecommunications facilities in Austria. A short info film awaits all visitors interested in technology. Opening hours: MO to SO 9-17 o'clock, entrance free!
