  • After a long trip driving from Vienna pleased to be in this wonderful place. Let's start with the fact that this clinical srednevekovy Castle is one of the few remaining private estates of the ancient Austrian nature. Now it is owned by the Crown of the Countess Herberstein. The castle was built in the mid 13rd century, and the family Herberstein lives here with the year 1290. The Castle acquired its current appearance in 1300 g. thanks to the efforts of the then owner Otto Herbershtajna. Recent changes in the architecture of the Queen are dated 1667. Maximilian Hirbershtajn gave the Castle a finished look with the addition of great Florentine courtyard and a huge family coat of arms. The architect of this arrangement was none other as Antonio Solari-author of the faceted Chamber and Towers of the Moscow Kremlin. The castle is located in a small Valley surrounded by the Austrian alpine hills. The castle itself is surrounded by, as expected, a moat. There is a legend that when regular enemies were going to win it, then they just don't see the castle that was covered by a dense fog that is loose in the Valley. And enemies have gone past. During the second world war, the castle was liberated the Germans company a of the 5th Red Army captain. He was a historian by training and a big fan of the history of Germany and Austria. Thanks to him, the castle was not looted. After the war the family Herberstein long tried to find the captain or his family. But in vain. Severely interfere with the iron curtain. Guides in the castle still asking any Russians who come here, if someone can help please something tell me. Ownership itself is, as I have already said, the classic medieval castle, with a private courtyard well that during the siege was that the drink and many winding corridors. Getting inside you feel all srednevekovost. Here are some amazing things: a huge collection of art objects.

  • Herberstein is threefold: the Castle, of course, little gem nestled in a hollow of the Valley, gardens and especially the beautiful rose garden which has made its reputation, the animal park particularly rich in animals of all kinds, paradise and land of discovery for children. It's a place that attracts crowds of tourists but spaces that allow to come and go quietly without printing scramble or "overflow". Two restaurants to outdoor lunch in a very nice setting. We can spend the time you want and it pays a bit the expensive admission ticket, but we do not regret.

  • Yes a little mini Versalles has since built the family Herberstein in Styria. Very nice courtyard with arcades. Origin, haaben all eras from the Renaissance through baroque to the Biedermeier left their mark Mittelalterlichn. Very inetressant that you can make with Palace tour, which should, is included in the admission price. Also worth visiting the exhibitions in the plant (Meyerei) and especially the Gironcoli Museum

  • The castle complex is an architectural delicacy, is the result of more than a century, építőtevékenységének. The Zoo is fun for families with children. Entering the Hungarian Pocket peppered.
