Stop At: Forchtenstein Castle

Immerse yourself in the distant past in the exhibitions at Forchtenstein Castle. Step into the inner courtyard for your first breathtaking surprise: the largest secco murals north of the Alps. Your tour of the castle begins with the oratory and the chapel on the first floor. Within the mighty walls of the stronghold you can explore over four hundred years of military history. The collection of weapons is one of Europe’s largest private armouries and offers insights into a long military tradition. The second floor displays the rich variety of the collections. A multitude of portraits paint a picture of the Esterházy family history. The cosmos of collections at Forchtenstein Castle furthermore includes Ottoman booty, coronation flags dating from the 17th century and exquisite art objects and astonishing rarities from the Kunstkammer (cabinet of curiosities) – mainly dating from the late 16th to the early 18th century.
