Schloss Persenbeug History

The first historical mention of the Persenbeug castle was found in 970 AD The Bavarian Sieghart, count of Semt and Ebersberg, took possession of "Persinpiugun" and fortified it.

Over the centuries, the castle has changed hands many times. Until 1593 it was sometimes still and still in the possession of sovereign princes. He was then sold to the sex of Hoyos, who expanded the castle in its present form. On December 3, 1800, Emperor Franz I of Austria bought Castle and Reign Persenbeug as a free private property. Almost at the same time, the Gutenbrunn rule came into the possession of Francis I., also incorporated into his private fund.

Through various successions the Persenbeug and Gutenbrunn manors arrived in the possession of Emperor Franz Joseph I, who passed them in 1916 to his daughter Maria Valerie. Some of his descendants form the current family co-ownership community.

The magnificent ballroom on the upper floor of the east wing of the castle is characterized by a large flat ceiling in richly decorated stucco. Presumably created in 1670/80 by Viennese artists, it determines the design character of the room, together with the large central mirror, the opulent decoration and the winged hybrid creature in the corners of the room.

Noteworthy is the painting by Joseph Rebel of Schloss Leiben in the Weitental with the imperial family in the foreground. It shows the close family engagement of the crown prince Arciduca Ferdinando, later emperor Ferdinando il Gentile, together with his wife Maria-Anna, Princess of Savoy, in the summer of 1830.

The imposing, richly decorated with Kaisersaal with wood paneling was mainly used for private events of the imperial family. In August 1887, baptismal celebrations were held for the last and last emperor of Austria, Charles I.

Outside a large park of about 0,000 square meters with rare trees and shady boulevards, connected by two old stone park bridges on the east side of the building on the same level with the castle. Created in its current form and design as early as 1779, over the decades the castle park has repeatedly received artistic and functional additions and expansions, for example through the 1891 building.
