After the end of World War II, the new Hungarian communist government confiscated most of the family lands and Prince Paul was sentenced to solitary confinement for 15 years. He was freed in 1956 and left Hungary for Switzerland with his wife Melinda. The couple settled in Zurich, from where they managed the remains of the family fortune (mainly located in Austria).

Since he didn't left children, his heir was his widow Melinda. Fürstin Melinda has since then created several foundations, with the aim of preserving the cultural heritage of the House of Esterházy, and opened as museums many of the family residences.
