The castles, palaces and monasteriesof the Waldviertelof the Waldviertel rise up majestically in their impressive beauty, seemingly untouched by the ravages of time. Try and imagine what it would be like to be the lord or damsel of the castle for a day? Take a few days off to explore the world of the privileged and visit some of the castles on the Waldviertel castle trail.
These castles are often used as venues for cultural events. Weitra Castle, for example, with its beautiful arcaded courtyard protected from wind and rain, provides the background for first-class cultural events. Alternatively, take off into the world of the famous"Schrammel" (Viennese folk) music Schrammelklang-Wolke in the unique natural lake setting of the “Herrensee” (a natural lake) near Litschau.
