Pöggstall Castle

Venue of the Lower Austrian Exhibition in 2017.

The medieval centre of power of the Ysper and Weitental regions offers a wide range of attractions: a historical torture chamber complete with fearsome instruments of torture, a museum of judicial history, a memorial to the graphic artist Franz Traunfellner as well as exhibitions on folklore and apiculture.  Architectural highlights include the arcaded courtyard and the so-called rondell, a circular bastion with embrasures built in around 1535 and decorated with friezes and sgraffiti.
