We came on a trip via our river cruise. This place has a very interesting history as it was the home of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the assisination of whom caused the outbreak of World War One.

Nice exhibition, nice Café, relaxing garden area. It's not exciting, but very calm, best if you look for something to wind down.
We got a personal visit with the princess of the castle and a descendant of the Habsburg family, Princess Anita. A visit to the crypt in the basement of the castle is where Franz Ferdinand and wife Sophie are entombed. There’s also a small museum showing the event leading up to the First World War. Great tour for history buffs, not so much for others in our group.
