Stations of the Cross

In the chapel that was erected in 1790 by Hans Tockner (generally known as Haswa) there is a painted crucifixion scene including Christ on the Cross together with the two thieves and St. John, Maria and Maria Magdalena at the foot of the Cross.
The parisch Church of St. Ulrich
The Church of St. Ulrich "Ulrichskirche" at the beginning of the Etrachtal Valley dates back to the end of the 15th Century and is one of the very few Gothic churches to be found in Austria outside of towns and cities. Over the centuries no constructual changes have been made to the church. The ornamental features in the wooden ceiling can also be found in the village coat of arms.
The Calvary Chapel thrones high above the village district of Krakaudorf. The hand carved and painted statues in the wooden chapel depict the Passion of Christ.
