Fabulous Khevenhüller-Metsch Castle

Burg Hochosterwitz, Carinthia, Austria

Seen in the photo in the link posted by Stefan above.
According to Wiki "Since the 16th century, no major changes have been made to Hochosterwitz. It has also remained in the possession of the Khevenhüller family as requested by the original builder, George Khevenhüller. A marble plaque dating from 1576 in the castle yard documents this request."

-> Burg Hochosterwitz

-> The Burg from afar

-> Yes, this is real!

Cool

What a fantastic place. It would be fun as well as very interesting to visit such a holding and listen to stories about it's history. It's interesting to find Royal and Noble families still living in such surroundings.

I like learning about new things espically dynasties no matter what part of the world they come from.It's exicting to see that there are still royal and noble families around and hear of those I have not heard of before.

It is interesting that they maintained intermarrying with noble/equal families...Current Fürst is married to a member of Borghese princely family while all of his sibling intermarried with nobles,some with Castell-Castell and Walburg-Wolfegg families...Their aunt Helene was married to two Bayern Princes...
