Trofaiach

Trofaiach is located 658 m above sea level in the valley of Vordernberg south of the Eisenerzer Alps. The residential and cultural town on the Styrian Iron Route has a surface area of 5 km². The city of Trofaiach offers visitors and vacationers a diverse cultural program, a lively Old Town, shopping possibilities and a colorful spectrum of sports, leisure and relaxation possibilities. Most of all however, the town impresses through the overwhelming alpine scenery.

Historically, the towns’ roots date back to the first century before Christ. In those days copper-miners started to settle in this area. In the first century after Christ, communities along the Iron Road gained importance because of the ore mining activities at the Erzberg. Discoveries shown in the local museum demonstrate the hustle and bustle of the market at that time. After a while, Leoben replaced Trofaiach as the most important market place for iron and people started to move to Leoben. The development of today’s city centre started in the 11th century. Thanks to two already existing churches, the Trinity and the Ruperti church, Trofaiach became the religious center of the region.
