Description

The extensive collection of weapons in Forchtenstein Castle includes countless pieces of armour from the 16th century and the Thirty Years War, and this new exhibition shows what life was really like for the soldiers who served this distinguished family. Surround yourself with medieval history and take a guided tour of this historic castle.

The castle enthroned under the Rosaliengebirge is one of the most important symbols of Burgenland. Burg Forchtenstein, built in the early 14th century, withstood the Turkish invasion of Vienna in 1529 and in 1622 came into the possession of the Counts Esterházy, who completely rebuilt it.

The armoury alone is worth the trip (unless you have tried to storm the castle, in which case the array of muskets, helmets, halberds, crossbows, cannonballs and hand grenades might make you reconsider). With such an impressive presentation of weapons, it is no wonder that nobody could take Forchtenstein Castle!

The brand new exhibition Grenades, Flags, Grenadiers comprises ten fascinating rooms and tells you all about life in the Esterházy uniform and introduces you to the fearsome weapons and equipment that defended their rule.

With free guided tours (in German and Hungarian, with English information brochure) the secrets of the castle are just waiting to be discovered!
