Villach - The Town

Villach still has some late Medieval and Renaissance courts and burgher houses that tell the story of its commercial success in the middle ages. Later, many of these houses got Baroque facades, but the much older core can usually be easily recognised. Most of Villach′s town centre is pedestrianised, therefore, it is quite enjoyable to explore it on foot.
