Ich war mit zwei Freundinnen gekommen ind wir könnten, jede für sich, wie auch jede allein, das riesige Schloss zuerst mit dem guten, ausführlich erklärenden und zu Späßen aufgelegten Führer Raum für Raum kennen lernen. Anschließend blieb noch genügend Zeit, ganz individuell die interessantesten, schönsten Dinge, Gemälde, Gerätschaften und unterschiedlichen Eindrücke der vielen Räume nochmals richtig genießen. Was will man mehr?!

About: Forchtenstein Castle

Nestled in the Rosaliengebirge (Rosalia) mountain range, Forchtenstein Castle is a wonderful example of Middle Age fortification. Constructed for nobles in the 1400s, it now serves as a fascinating museum that shows off the wealth and power of bygone royals.

The castle has changed hands many times, including the House of Habsburg. It now rests – and has for many years – in the possession of the noble Hungarian Esterházy House.

Feast your eyes on the stunning Esterházy Palace in Vienna's Eisenstadt - one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Austria and a venue for festivals and events. Built in the late 13th century, the Palace Chapel and the world famous Haydnsaal, plus the banquet hall, and wine cellars all offer a glimpse into the life at the court of the Princes Esterházy. The Haydn exhibition explores the life of the musical maestro Joseph Haydn, who served as the composer here for 40 years.

Esterházy Winery

The Esterházy Winery (part of the Esterházy estate) has been producing wines in Burgenland for more than 250 years, so you won't get better wine experts in Vienna. All wines are made with the characteristics of surrounding Neusiedl, Leithaberg, and Eisenstadt and tours invite guests to sample five Esterházy wines, including the flagship wine, Tesoro.

Located on the grounds of the imperial summer palace, Tiergarten Schönbrunn (Vienna Zoo) is the oldest zoo in the world - and yet still frequently voted one of the world's best. The zoo was founded as an imperial menagerie in 1752, by the then Holy Roman Emperor, Francis I. It was opened to the public in 1779. The Tiergarten has an amazing array of animals (more than 700 species in all).

The Belvedere Palace is in fact two palaces: the Upper and Lower, both of which were built by Prince Eugene of Savoy. These Habsburg palaces are the centerpieces of gorgeously landscaped gardens, with tiered fountains and statues nestled in the greenery. Both palaces are filled with priceless art in the permanent collections (including Gustav Klimt's The Kiss), as well as changing exhibitions.

With around 65,000 drawings and more than a million old master prints, the Albertina is a mightily impressive collection of art. Located in the largest Habsburg residential palace, the collection also includes more modern works - including two significant collections of Impressionist and early 20th-century art, and temporary exhibitions. Also on display are 21 exquisite Habsburg state rooms, spread over two floors of the palace.
