The interior of this castle, the last home of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, whose assassination led to World War I, is accessible by guided tour only (and requires tickets). The grounds and garden, however, are open to all free of charge.
This is a beautiful castle that was home to a loving family and it shows. It was also surprising to see the modern amenities like a lift and a bathroom with hot and cold running water and flush toilet.

It was closed when we arrived (we knew this).

However its another 30 min walk from station to the castle, though through a nice park. I say castle, it's more of a mansion. There are four tours... 更多
