Due to lock down have passed by this great castle as it is not far and i often walk this route. The castle itself was closed due to the lock down. Was very impressive this cold day, from far looks...

Beautiful little castle close to Vienna. There are guided tours if you fancy a closer look. The castle sits on a small hill with plenty of foot paths for the adventurous as well as car access to a close by manor.
Although, rebuild as a castle- museum in the 1900drs, it still shows a lot of it's original Romanesque construction, we had a friendly and knowledgeable guide, it was an interesting tour, roughly an hour long
