The Republic of Austria and its historical heritage
The Artstetten Castle was acquired in 1823 by Emperor Franz I, and thus became his imperial residence. The Biedermeier emperor had a penchant for the charming Lower Austria, as he called the 14 castles in this area his property. The Artstetten Castle is one of the few that was later taken care of by his successors. In this film, the multi-faceted story of the house is told, which has not only gained importance in the world through the heir to the throne Franz Ferdinand. The imperial swimming pool of Archduke Carl Ludwig, the unique castle garden with its amazing nature, the mysterious burial place of Franz Ferdinand and his wife are some of the delights presented in the story. Nowadays all this posses the current owner of the property, the Hohenberg family that Karl Hohenlohe was talking to.
