Our party of 5 arrived just after lunch and found the castle easily with plenty of parking. We were able to take our time inside and check out all the art and displays. A highlight of our trip for sure.

Displays that we saw were very varied and some very unusual to downright weird (models of nude hanging men from a joint scaffold). It was a very humid and thundery day and the temperature inside the museum soared and was totally airless which made it...More

Well preserved castle architecture, which has been restored and updated to make exhibition space. The medieval chapel frescoes were superb. The Egger-Lienz paintings were well displayed with useful information - for those with no German, there was an English leaflet. We enjoyed the film and...More
