Special features: House of Archaeology - showroom contains exhibits from the excavations on the Kathreinkogel, as well as from other excavation sites in Carinthia. A museum - built over a cistern with a capacity of 80,000 l - brings to light many informative details of the past. The uncovered settlement is currently considered the oldest excavated settlement in the entire Eastern Alps. The museum is open from June to September.
