Schloss Rosenburg

Lower Austria

Schloss Rosenburg is a Renaissance castle 50km north of Krems where the highlights include a large armoury and the grand quarters of the former owners, the oddly-named Hoyos. Another unmissable here are the falconry shows that take place at 11am and 3pm. There's also a small museum dedicated to the history of falconry.
