Castle Offenburg

VR glasses compatible (e.g. Quest 3)


Offenburg ruins near Pöls ob Judenburg. Not much is left. This is mainly due to a major fire in 1590. With the exception of the keep, the castle burned down and was not really repaired afterwards. The keep is worth seeing because it has a beautiful, high-lying Romanesque entrance gate.

Help for the tour

The virtual tour is best experienced in full screen (double click on the image or click on the button at the bottom right), on a large PC monitor with headphones or speakers. Simple reconstructions of the former building structure become visible under the mouse cursor (or when touching the touchscreen). Small details are pointed out using information symbols.
At the top right, an orientation plan and/or a map can be activated, at the right edge the music can be set to mute, a compass can be hidden or shown and switched to English.
If you activate the home button at the top of the screen, you get to the aerial photo/overview and back again.
The tour, like all the others, can be experienced with VR glasses such as a Quest 3. Without additional software – simply enter the URL of this page in the browser of the glasses, activate the VR button that is then visible there – done.
