Schallaburg is a village in the municipality of Schollach, in Lower Austria, Austria. Schallaburg is situated at an altitude of 310 m. The Schallaburg Castle is one of the best known Renaissance style castles in Austria. Nowadays the castle Schallaburg is a museum.History of the castle SchallaburgFrom 1456 until 1614 the castle Schallaburg was in the possession of the family Von Losenstein. In the 16th century Hans Wilhelm von Losenstein renovated it in Renaissance style. He also rebuilt the church of Loosdorf and made it a renaissance Lutheran church and there he also founded a Lutheran grammar school for the youth of the nobility but also for the youth of non nobility ('die Hohe Schule', 1574-1627). In 1601 Hans Wilhelm von Losenstein died. Then there rested high debts on the castle. In 1614 the father-in-law of George Christophh auf Losensteinleithen, George von Stubenberg, bought the castle. In 1627 the church and school were closed according to a law issued by the archduke of Austria emperor Ferdinand II, who wished to restore the catholic faith in Lower Austria. From the 17th century until the 20th the castle changed owners several times. The castle remained private property until 1945. In 1945 it was confiscated by the Russians. In 1955 the castle became property of the new Republic Austria.Museum SchallaburgIn 1967 the government of Lower Austria bought the castle from the Austrian state. The government of Lower Austria decided to renovate the Schallaburg. In 1968 the restoration started with the roof. In 1974 the Schallaburg was opened as a museum for Lower Austria.
