Artstetten is the perfect place for your next event. In the middle of the 13th century the name Artstetten is mentioned in documents for the first time. Very soon, the medieval fortress developed into a castle, which had various owners in quick succession until it was acquired by Emperor Franz I in 1823. In 1861, Archduke Carl Ludwig (brother of Emperor Franz Josef) began to generously redesign the interior and exterior of the house.
