The fort is located on a slightly elevated terrain east of the River Traisen’s mouth, at the crossing of transportation routes and the navigable river. There is an earlier earth-and timber construction followed by a later fort built of stone. The civil settlement stretched along the road leading from the eastern gate and south of the fort.
