Goldegg, Austria

It is situated on a sunny plateau north of the Salzach River, the so-called « Sunny Terrace » at a distance of 60 km (37 mi) south of the City of Salzburg
In fact, the village owes its name (“Goldegg at the lake”) to a small lake at which it is located. There are approximately 2.200 inhabitants living in the local area, which covers 33,1 square kilometres.
The municipal area includes the cadastral communities of Buchberg, Goldegg, and Weng.
Archaeological findings in the area date back to the Hallstatt era, where a settlement was located on the mountain pass road up the Gastein Valley and across the Hohe Tauern mountain range.
Goldegg Castle was built in the 14th century. The Lords of Goldegg had sided with the Wittelsbach king Louis IV of Germany in the conflict with his Habsburg rival Frederick the Fair, whereafter the Archbishops of Salzburg had their estates devastated. 
King Louis, having prevailed in the 1322 Battle of Mühldorf, backed the erection of a new castle and a parish church. The building remained a Salzburg fief, given in pawn several time and finally seized by Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich Raitenau in 1612. 
It is now a modern cultural centre, offering interesting events all the year round, like concerts, exhibitions of regional or international artists, theatrical or comedian performances, seminars or workshops.
The municipality also possesses a museum, exhibiting a great collection of pottery, folkloristic clothes and rustic furniture. 
First time I was in Goldegg last summer on August 20th. I was fascinated, like today. And today I came here to visit a small rent apartment.
A beautiful, beautiful place to live ..... but a bit isolated in my case ..... I let the intuition decide, not the mind ...
I run some kilometers and took a lot of pictures around .... taugh decision ....
