Dorfheim estate history in Saalfelden dates to the 12th century. The castle was rebuilt in 1601 by Josef Hunt. It was almost completely destroyed by a fire in 1901 and rebuilt by Martin Hartl from 1912. Today there is a restaurant in the ground floor.

Soukromý nepřísrupný hrad. Kolem něj vede značená turistická cesta. Asi 500 m nad hradem jsou další stavby vtesané do skály, obrazy svatých, poutní místo a krásný výhled na hrad, do údolí i na okolní hory. Z tohoto místa se dá dále pokračovat několika dalšími cestami do hor. Koncem března tu kvetou bledule, podlésky, sasanky a začínají kvést petrklíče.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
