Nestled in the Rosaliengebirge mountain range, Forchtenstein Castle is a wonderful example of Middle Ages fortifications, and now serves as a fascinating museum. Showing off the wealth and power of lords and princes alike, this castle changed hands many times, though it now rests - and has for many years - in the possession of the noble Hungarian Esterházy family.
