Greillenstein Castle

Excellent source of Renaissance history first-hand.

The Renaissance castle of Greillenstein was built in the 16th century and for a long time was used for administrative purposes. It has survived the course of the centuries almost unscathed and is now privately owned. Greillenstein Castle has a lot to offer: Renaissance baths, a dungeon, a park and the dwarves' garden with an interesting collection of sandstone dwarves. The famous courtroom, chapel, library and Turks' Hall can only be seen as part of a guided tour. The spookier side of castle life can be experienced on one of the candlelit evening ghost tours.
