Klammstein Castle near Dorfgastein

Burg Klammstein in Dorfgastein, Austria On my train journeys through Austria, I often pass Klammstein Castle (Burg Klammstein) which used to block the Gastein Valley (Gasteinertal) in the north. At that time it was meant as toll station for the traffic passing the valley. Today it houses a museum about the history of the castle and the valley.

Interesting detail:  Next to the tunnel for cars depicted above there is also a separate tunnel for cyclists and walkers only.
