    From the castle to the palace: the cultural jewel is being created

    Construction progress in the 16th century

    Come on in!
    • Die Wälder um die Schallaburg eignen sich für Wanderungen und Spaziergänge. Christoph von Losenstein began remodelling the medieval castle around 1540. Modelled on the imperial residence in Vienna, he had a hall built opposite the residential castle.
    •  Hans Wilhelm von Losenstein continued his father's building work and initially focussed on the design of the courtyards. The arcaded courtyards were built between 1570 and 1580.
    • Blick durch einen steinernen Torbogen auf einen Weg mit Apfelbäumen gesäumt After the Renaissance-style palace was completed, the garden was designed. The cryptoporticus at the end of the garden invites visitors to typical garden parties, while the ballroom and shooting range are used for physical exercise.
    •  At the same time, Hans Wilhelm von Losenstein constructs further buildings for the castle grounds. The Gerichtsstöckl & Jägerstöckl and the Neuschloss were presumably planned especially as utility rooms.
    In 2024, for the first time it will be possible to visit Schallaburg sites that were previously inaccessible.
