About the relaunch

In 2012 Flavia Solva was converted into a navigable showcase. The interior of the building has been rented out since then, and is operated as a café by Konditorei Koppitz. From 2012 to 2013 the conservation and restoration of the Roman-era foundation walls was undertaken, as was the freeing up to the ancient city on the site to make it visible. By April 2017, Flavia Solva will have been relaunched, with the location name, quality of visitors’ experience and marketing of location all to be redefined.


Goals of the project are to re-name the location, to improve the visualisation of the former extension of the ancient town of Flavia Solva, and to furnish the open-air site with additional information signs. Moreover, new findings from Flavia Solva are to be presented to visitors in a newly designed ‘display window of the Roman Period’, which was handed over to the Universalmuseum Joanneum in 2016 by Merkur Warenhandels AG in the form of a donation. These measures are to be completed by the end of April 2017. The opening will then take place on May 24th 2017 as part of the traditional ‘Aufrömern’ festival at the market municipality of Wagna.
