Vranov nad Dyjí Chateau
The chateau’s current appearance was designed by the imperial court architect Johann Bernhard Fischer from Erlach, the creator of Karlskirche in Vienna and the fountain on the Zelný trh Square in Brno.
During its heyday, the chateau belonged to the most renowned aristocratic residences. Even the Austrian Emperor Charles VI came 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 Predecessors of the Althann family with its wonderful Baroque fresco work.
