Baroque architect Lukas von Hildebrand into a magnificent estate. After lying fallow for many years, this jewel was reopened to visitors in 2005 following a comprehensive general renovation. Today, a unique princely ensemble of magnificent architecture and masterfully designed nature extends over more than 50 hectares. The magnificent imperial apartments are among the most beautiful early classicist banqueting halls in Austria and convey the magic of the imperial era. The world's best landscape architects also restored the original flair of the magnificent Baroque garden, laid out on seven terraces. A special attraction for children are the old domestic breeds and wild animals, to be admired in the petting zoo and menagerie.

To mark the 300th anniversary of Maria Theresa's birth, a comprehensive anniversary exhibition on the life and work of one of the most important rulers in European history will be launched on March 15, 2017.
