The Republic of Austria and its historical heritage
A cinematic excursion into a bygone era, as well as very interesting times. For the imperial family, hunting was a sociably acceptable pasttime and a favorite diversion. However, the history of Mürzsteg, Eckartsau and Hohenbrunn Castles extend far beyond their importance for hunting. We build connections between the Emperor and the Federal President, telling stories about highly volatile minutes in the life of Emperor Karl and providing our audience with amazing insights into the traditional hunting, which made the peaceful coexistence of man and nature possible.
Due to the diversity of the Austrian history, the successful series "Austria's Noble Mansions" this year provides insights into still inhabited properties. After the successful broadcasting of the first and second seasons, we, following the tradition, present other prominent Austrian mansions. Insights into the history as well as exciting anecdotes come to the light in the further 6 films, where Karl Hohenlohe accompanies the audience discovering the properties that are partially closed or not accessible to the public. Join us and discover with us the Austrian noble mansions, their exciting stories and traditions founded in the past, but still making the part of their modern legacy.
