Forchtenstein Castle

Looming up among the foothills of the Rosaliengebirge mountain range is Forchtenstein Castle. It is the only fortress in the region that was never captured during the Turkish Wars; thus the castle served as the treasury of the Esterházy princes, safeguarding all costly and precious possessions. This collection of family treasures can still be seen here today.more »
