A mere 24 kilometres from the outskirts of Vienna you can still breathe the air of the Habsburg Monarchy. Eckartsau Palace is situated right in an idyllic, natural countryside. Quite a few crowned heads walked in and out here! Heir to the throne, Franz Ferdinand, hunted and fell in love in this palace. Charles, the last emperor of Austria, sought to find a refuge with his family behind these walls in November 1918. If you’re interested in a unique view into the past, make sure of your ticket now!

The former hunting lodge has been through many upheavals in history. During the First World War, the ground floor of the chateau was even used as a stable! The reconstructions for the Lower Austria State Exhibition of 1986 entitled “Prince Eugene and Baroque Austria” actually saved the chateau from dereliction. Today, it has to be a must on your list! You can book your ticket here.

You’re on Slovakian soil when you visit the imposing ruins of Devín Castle, majestically enthroned on a high rock over the confluence of the Danube and the Morava, almost as if aware that it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Central Europe. The glorious view from up there is another reason why you shouldn’t miss out on a visit to the Devín Castle ruins!
