History of the Castle
It is worth taking a pleasant walk through the historic rooms of Trauttmansdorff Castle. From the medieval core, with the crypt, to the neo-rococo hall, you will get an insight into the varied art of the different periods, and into the eventful history of the castle, whose former owners have left their own very personal traces here.
A dreamy romantic in search of his roots; an Empress who could not bear life at home; her sickly daughter; an Emperor in search of his Empress; an old warhorse in the service of the Habsburgs; a German baron infatuated with Meran; war veterans who took up farming. They all stayed at Trauttmansdorff Castle for various lengths of time, influencing its place in history right up until the present day. The new permanent exhibition in the historic rooms of the castle dedicates a shining monument to each of these illustrious inhabitants.
