  The Liechtenstein Castle
by call_me_rhia
 
 

The Liechtenstein Castle is an amazing castle in the Vienna woods, near the village of Maria Enzersdorf. it was originally built during the 12th century by the Liechtenstein family before they chose Vaduz (in Liechtenstein) as their seat. Liechtenstein means "bright/light stone" and the castle, surrounded by woods and fields, seems to glare in the distance.

While it is no longer inhabited, the castle has not been left to ruin. Today it is used as the setting for the Nestroy Theatre Festival, which takes place every year in the summer months.

Address: near Maria Enzersdorf
Directions: in the Vienna woods

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
