So hunted Maria Theresia... # 2019

The Republic of Austria and its historical heritage

The castle Halbturn was built in 1711 by Lucas v. Hildebrandt for the father of Maria Theresa, Emperor Karl VI, and can be truly described as a baroque jewel. Being in posession of the Habsburg family throughout the centuries, we present the current inhabitants and managers of the castle, who are direct descendants of Maria Theresia. The families Königsegg and Waldbott-Bassenheim are closely linked to the establishment of the Albertina, their versatile cultural activities still bear witness to it today. In the documentary the viewer is taken on a discovery journey in and around the castle enjoying the diversity of Burgenland region. Unknown hunting grounds, vineyards for connoisseurs and the magnificent castle park with a private burial place are presented in this episode. Furthermore, Burgenland traditions and peculiarities, which became touristic highlights, also form part of the film.

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.
