Trautenfels Castle (Schloss Trautenfels) Excursions

Sitting high on a cliff above the Enns River in Austria, Trautenfels Castle is home to the regional landscape museum of the Universalmuseum Joanneaum, also known as the agricultural museum. The castle dates to the 13th century and features an impressive marble hall and colorful frescoes from the 16th century. Twelve rooms with different themes showcase more than 1000 exhibits relating to the natural and cultural history of the Enns Valley, Palten Valley and Aussee Lake District. One room focuses on the forest and the work of lumberjacks in the area, while another focuses on the natural landscape of the surrounding valley. Other rooms show off items ranging from mining tools to knitting work to sets of antlers and objects made from antlers. The State Rooms and their elaborate furnishings are also open to visitors, and the castle’s viewing tower offers superb views of the entire valley.

Also worth a stop are the ruins just west of the palace of the Protestant church of Neuhaus. Once the most important religious center in the valley, they were excavated in 1991 and today serve as a memorial.
