In the northwest area of Graz lies Gösting, the 13th city district of Graz. It is located between the river Mur and the Plabutsch mountain. On the north-west end of this borough is where you find the ruins of Gösting Castle. The first record of the castle dates back to the year 1042 and was once a lavish home to many noble families.
Nowadays, the ruins of Gösting take you back to the 11th century. The view from its tower give you a wide glance to Graz in the present and a glimpse into its feature.
