The museum in the castle
A tour of the museum is also a walk through the history of the previous castle owners and its inhabitants. Some rooms are museum-like, while in others you sense the presence of the former occupants.
Particularly noteworthy is the dining-room on the ground floor where the noble family once ate and which was directly connected to the kitchen.
The dungeon on the ground floor dates from the time of the bailiffs. The former castle owners include the von Erlach family, as the 17th century “Erlach Room” reminds us.
The chapel from the 15th century takes us to the time of the Scharnachthals. The impressive murals that can still be seen there were commissioned by this family.
On the second floor are the bedrooms of the domestic servants who looked after the aristocratic family in the 19th century. An exhibition conveys the everyday life of servants in an informative and interactive way.
