Grein is located at a picturisque scenic valley, along the Danube. The Greinburg castle was originally from 1490. The beautiful courtyard and gardens are well maintained. Really interesting to visit.

This place is a perfect showcase of how much the so-called nobles have robbed and stolen from the population to collect their riches and their wealth. The palace is really beautiful, it is still in a fantastic condition, definitely worth visiting. An interesting side note...More
