Here there are numerous sources, which are said to give partial healing. The Prince Bishop Cardinal Schwarzenberg, who was here in 1829 for the first time, sponsored a resort in the 19th Century, of the most famous mountain resorts in Austria and could measure up to Bad Gastein. However, the place, in consequence of the bankruptcy of the only remaining large hotels, fell into disrepair after 1945 and today consists of nothing but ruins and a restored church in the nineties again.
