Your experience

Description

At the heart of the imposing Forchtenstein Castle is one of the most extensive and far-reaching private art collections in Europe. In a breathtaking 17th century gallery you can see portraits of the Princes of Esterházy, combining stately shoulders with Attila the Hun, Charlemagne and Vlad the Impaler, and enjoy the hunting exhibition of Prince Tally-ho! dedicated to the thrill of the hunt.

The princes of Esterházy were many things, but they were not modest. As enthusiastic social climbers, they wanted to establish the Esterházy dynasty as a great world power that could compete with the greatest in history.

Her own portrait gallery in the Hall of Ancestors is proof of this self-glorifying spirit. The life-size portraits give you an impression of the opulence of the Esterházy lifestyle. Enjoy lush baroque settings, traditional Hungarian royal costumes and sparkling jewellery

Continue your journey with the Princely Tally-ho! exhibition, which combines paintings, weapons and porcelain design to study and celebrate the noble tradition of hunting.
