Description

If you love shiny things and priceless artifacts you're going to love the appropriately named 'Treasure Chamber'. These fortified rooms of the magnificent Forchtenstein Castle are brimming with all things shiny, from the bejeweled spoils of war to a collection of priceless clocks and automata. Join a knowledgeable guide to learn about all of these eye-catching items!

The Esterházy princes really knew how to live, and their mountainside fortress is a perfect testament to their wealth, influence and power. The whole castle is certainly eye-catching enough, but when you head down to the treasure chamber, prepare to be thoroughly blown away.

It's the only chamber of this scale to completely preserve its original collection and condition, so you'll feel just like a prince (or princess!) as you browse its breathtaking wares. Look out for ornate ivory carvings, a gargantuan collection of silver furniture, and the priceless Augsburg automata, all displayed in the original 17th-century cabinets.

Your expert guide will make sure you get the most from your visit, and you'll learn all about the history of this incredible building and the people who lived there over the centuries.
