Burg Liechtenstein

  Am Hausberg 2      +43 650 680 39 01     24 Apr 2019
Liechtenstein castle was built in 1130 as a fortified castle with a chapel on the way of the Via Sacra by Hugo von Petronell, who since then called himself as “ von Liechtenstein”.

Today the castle is clamped between the Romanesque architecture of the 12th century and the Historicism of the 19th century. A special cultural treasure is the chapel (1130), with its red chalk drawing, which was created around 1240. Another historical highlight you will find at the castle is Austria's oldest bed - a Romance Cabin (12th century) which can be found in the hall of the castle as well as powerful beams.
Today the family seat of the Princes of Liechtenstein, together with the Heiligenkreuz monastery represents a prominent tourist attraction in the southern Vienna Woods. Since 2010, the castle is restored, and has presented testimony of the representative will of the Liechtenstein princes of the 19th Century.For more information please contact: www.burgliechtenstein.eu
