Bad Radkersburg

Trip Planner Europe  /  Austria  /  Styria  /  Bad Radkersburg
Bad Radkersburg is a spa town in the southeast of the Austrian state of Styria, in the district of Südoststeiermark.GeographyIn the south the town borders Slovenia on the Mur River. On the other side of the river lies its twin city Gornja Radgona (Oberradkersburg) in the Slovenian Styria region. Bad Radkersburg is a spa sporting a thermal spring with a temperature of 80 °C. This and the longest sunshine duration in Austria make it an attractive site of tourism with 100,000 stays per year.In the course of a Styrian administrative reform, the town will merge with the neighbouring municipality of Radkersburg Umgebung with effect from 1 January 2015.HistoryIt is not known when Radkersburg was first settled or where the first settlement, mentioned in a 1182 deed, was located. It is also not known when it fell under princely territorial rule. Most likely, Radkersburg originally did not belong to the Dukes of Styria, but possibly to an aristocrat named Radger to whom it had been given by the German king. A market is documented in a 1265/67 urbarium issued under King Ottokar II of Bohemia, who ruled Styria from 1261 to 1278, however, contemporary research suggests that the present-day town was founded by the Habsburg king Albert I of Germany, Duke of Styria, in the end of the 13th century. The appearance of the city today is apparently based on a precise plan, surrounded by a wall with towers. Radkerburg was first mentioned as a town in 1299.
