Surrounded by lush countryside, Forchtenstein Castle is one of the oldest museum sites in Europe. Venture within and discover its collection of historical treasures which range from military equipment to Ottoman booty. 

History buffs will be in awe of the castle's impressive private armory, which happens to be one of the largest in Europe. As you journey through, you'll discover even more impressive objects and get to explore the various rooms which were once part of daily life in the castle. Be sure to stop by the beautifully decorated chapel, explore the castle kitchens, and take a peek down the 50-foot-deep well. 

Owned by the western Hungarian Esterházy line, the castle is also home to a multitude of family portraits. Amongst them are images of fictional ancestors, including Attila the Hun and Vlad the Impaler. Interestingly, the inclusion of these historical figures was an attempt by the Esterházy family to exaggerate their heroic lineage.
