Feldkirch with historic centre and Schattenburg

WI_at001_05_106.jpg

Late afternoon view from Stadtschrofen over Feldkirch in NE direction. Protected by hills and located at the junction of important traffic routes, the evolving settlement had already been equipped with the rights of a town by the early 13th century. It still represents one of the most important urban centres in the province of Vorarlberg. The well-preserved old town and the Schattenburg (shown in the right centre of the image) remind of earlier times.
