The settlement of St. Peter in Holz was founded around the 12th c. BC. The Celtic village of Teurnia was incorporated into a large urban centre planned by the Romans around 50 AD. In the 5th and 6th centuries Teurnia was a stronghold of the province of Noricum and a bishopric, as the huge ruins of an Episcopal church and cemetery church reveal. The mosaic floor of the church is one of the most important in Europe. The Roman museum in Teurnia is a recent creation.

Destination

Spittal/Nord – Evangelist church

Turn-by-turn directions

the walk starts from the car-park near the Evangelist church in Spittal. Turn left at Ebnerwiese meadow on Fratresstrasse street and walk through a wood as far as St. Peter in Holz (a late- Gothic church with frescoes and a lookout point). The Roman museum in Teurnia stands in front of the church. Past the museum you turn to the right and about 200 metres later  you will find the oldest Episcopal church in Austria (ca. 4th c.). It is enclosed by a protective structure. Continue along this road for about 1 km (or you could have turned off earlier and taken a steep path for about 800 metres) where you will come across a church with a famous mosaic floor (ca. 5th c.).
