Am Hof #1

Am Hof is the name of the largest square in the city center. The history of the square goes back to the Roman era, when a garrison was built here. In the 12th century the Babenberg duke Henry II Jasomirgott built a castle on the Roman foundations. The castle was the residence of the dukes of Austria from 1156 until 1220. The square in front of the castle was first used for jousting tournaments and later became a market square.
This is the view of the square during my ride on the ladder of a fire truck 30m above the ground.
