Visit this Baroque gem, which looks down from a promontory in the picturesque valley of the River Dyje.
The chateau’s current appearance was imprinted on it by the imperial court architect Johann Bernhard Fischer from Erlach, the designer of Karlskirche in Vienna and the fountain on Zelný trh in Brno. During its heyday, the chateau was included in the ranks of other renowned aristocratic residences. Even the Austrian Emperor Charles VI rode here to visit the charming owner Maria Anna Marquis of Pignatelli, originally from Spain. We especially recommend that you view the unique oval Hall of Ancestors of the Althann family with its wonderful Baroque fresco work. You can have a rest in the chateau gardens.
