Castles and Palaces
Like hardly any any other region, the Burgenland is littered with old castles and picturesque palaces.
Castle Güssing, the oldest castle in the Burgenland, houses a vast number of cultural assets and serves as the location for the annual summer festivals. Above the styrian border lies the Riegersburg, where bird of prey demonstrations and exhibitions await you, as well as the fairytale-like Garden palace Herberstein with a zoo and a natural preserve. At castle Schlaining you can visit the European peace museum.
These castles are only a few from the many in the south east of Austria, that are worth visiting. Discover secrets from bygone times and follow in the footsteps of knights and lords.
The historic old town of Hartberg in the east of Styria is only around 25 minutes away. It is one of the best preserved old towns in Styria and has an eventful history. A first settlement on the nearby „Ringkogel“ excisted as early as the new stone age, which was followed by more in the following cultural epochs. On an archaeological circular path around the „Ringkogel“ you can explore the „ring wall“, which the Celts used as a proctection against enemies and which gave the mountain its name.
Hartberg was founded by margrave Leopold I von Styar soon after 1122 as the first Traungauer-Pfalz on styrian soil. Today the charming old town in Hartberg invites you to stroll, enjoy and discover. As the „city of senses“ it has numerous sights and excursions like the romantic „Karner”, the parish church, the castle, the museum and many more.
