  • The magnificent Castle, where it is possible to go on a tour without a guide but with a print wizard, all the necessary information, as well as in English. I highly recommend it.

  • Unfortunately the NÖ-card is not valid here so we were persuaded by the Lady at the checkout to to purchase a combo ticket Hardegg and Riegersburg castle for at least €15,50 per person. It opened us to the Castle gate with a key and sent us alone on the tour of the Castle. Beautifully restored the Castle from the middle of the 12th century. She served previously as an administrative center of County Hardegg. It has been expanded again and again, still she stands today as a unit before the visitors. The winter kitchen, the Knight's Hall, the Chapel, the Maximilian of Mexico Museum have particularly impressed. The collection of weapons in the Armory is open only in the part of a guided tour and visit. There were only 2 more visitors with us at the Castle next to us.

  • Powerful towers the Castle Hardegg about the city. Like all the castles on the Thaya, it served to defend the Thayagrenze against Bohemia. The fall of the fortress began with the end of the 30-year-old war. After a serious fire, the population used the ruins as a hardware store and dragged tons of stones and wood to rebuild of their homes away. The final fate of the castle ruins seemed close, if there was no Prince Johann Carl Khevenhüller, who commissioned the renovation of the Castle at the end of the 19th century. The ruins of the castle is worth a visit in any case, however, the entry to the castle is not exactly cheap. There's but cheaper combo card with the Middle baroque castle Riegersburg. The caption of the individual exhibits a track could be improved. The Castle lives especially by the atmosphere that reigns within the old walls.

  • Very nice castle on the hill on Austria border with Czech which completely worth visit
  • Beautiful castle set on top of a hill in a small town of the same name. The castle is accessible without a guide for 7 EUR entrance fee. Inside you can see the rebuild chapel, knight's hall and a small museum of Maximilian I of Mexico. Well worth a visit.
  • Enthroned on a cliff in dense fir forest at the mouth of the Fugnitzbaches in rushing Thaya, serving as the border festivals and center of aristocratic rule from the 12th century and up 16 large hilltop castle with late historicist elements. Atmosphere very dense atmosphere!

  • A beautiful castle in the picturesque Austrian town. You can take the tour without a guide and with dogs. Definitely worth a visit even for the price a little higher admission. You can pay on the spot. also in CZK (with a higher rate). You can also communicate in English.
