Romantic historicism at its peak

Grafenegg Castle has a long history dating back to 1294, when a small settlement called Espersdorf was mentioned on the site of today's castle. Over the centuries, the castle changed hands several times and was rebuilt. In the 19th century, the castle was fundamentally redesigned in the spirit of Romantic historicism, giving it its present form. Today the castle belongs to the House of Ratibor and is a place of culture. Since 1971, various events such as exhibitions, concerts, conferences, courses and, since 1976, the Grafenegg Advent have been held here every year.
