Villach Parish Church Steeple

The steeple of St. Jakob‘s is 94 meters high and therefore the highest church steeple in Carinthia.

It has been renovated several times and was already famous in the Middle Ages. Over 239 steps you’ll reach the tower keeper’s flat and you can enjoy the stunning view to the city, to the Hohen Tauern mountain range and the Julian Alps.
