Schloss Naudersberg History
The area of the oldest rectangular castle is made up of the south-eastern Palas and a square to the west. The circular arched door of the castle with iron-clad iron wings from the 14th century is located in the circular sweat-shaped wall. In the late Middle Ages, the ring wall and the Palas were covered by a wall and loopholes. The large courtyard was originally built with sloping roof construction wings, so that only a small central courtyard remained.
The keep, under a more recent pitched roof, is six stories high. The upper floors were built in the early 16th century. The three-storey building under a coffered roof has battlements to the east and original loopholes. The regular rows of windows date back to the 16th century. On the ground floor there is a ceiling with medieval beams on a beveled wooden pillar. On the second floor, there is a Prince's room with a late-Gothic stave panel, which was covered with the painting of the Empire from 1806 to 1809. On the second floor is the former courtroom with a field ceiling rough and richly profiled from the late fifteenth century. The rest of the rooms have a simple frame and field ceilings from the 16th and 17th centuries.
On the second floor there is the ribbed vaulted chapel, with the entrance to the chapel and a circular arched portal dating back to the 19th century. In the bell tower there is a bell from 1465.
