Scharnstein Castle

Scharnstein, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • Suitable for groups

Experience the special atmosphere of those splendid rooms where the rebels met, not knowing that they would soon be executed for high treason!

Guided tours are offered through these private chambers (not normally open to the public), where the visitor is confronted with the coded messages of the rebellious protestants in a time of political and social strife during Reformation and Counter-Reformation.

Let yourself be abducted into a journey through the times, when the castle owners will tell you both authentically and knowingly about the changing fates of this traditional house. Gorgeously painted wooden ceilings, secret staircases and the incomparable atmosphere of this privately owned and inhabited renaissance castle await your discovery.

Guided tours are only available for groups between 15 and 80 persons and only after previous arrangement.
