Nestled in an idyllic setting on the edge of the Donau-Auen National Park, our estate contains a variety of lovingly maintained farm and residential buildings. These historic buildings originally formed the castle complex, with some dating back many centuries. The original names, which they still bear today, add a certain fairy-tale charm.

Cared for, maintained and improved over the centuries, the buildings of our estate represent the heart and soul of many people and generations.

The Schüttkasten.

The lofty Schüttkasten was originally constructed in 1774 to serve as the main granary for the region. The building’s six storeys provide a total area of 2,200 m², making it unusually spacious. The interior features large Roman stone pillars and long, hand-carved wooden beams, reminiscent of times long past.

The Rundkapelle.
“St. John the Baptist”

The Rundkapelle (round chapel) is one of the oldest and most significant Romanesque structures in Austria. The chapel’s history stretches back to the High Middle Ages of the 12th century. According to lore, the chapel was built by the Templars on the site of a previous building. The chapel has since served many different purposes over the course of its long life. The building was converted in 1729 into the family burial vault we can see today.

The Meierhof.
Seminar facility & clubroom

The Meierhof was constructed in the 17th century and used to be a big square complex. It originally served as the main working centre from which the lord’s lands were managed. The complex contained essential elements of the estate including the stables, smithy, cabinetmaker, carpenter, wagon-maker, other workshops and accommodation for seasonal workers, some of which can still be seen today.

Tiergarten &
Tiergarten Wall.

About one and a half kilometres before Petronell, visitors will come to a long, medieval-looking stone wall. What does it enclose and why was it built?

The heritage-listed Tiergarten Wall was constructed in the 17th century to enclose the 50 ha Tiergarten (animal park). Being 3.2 km long, the wall is made up of more than one million Roman stones taken from the ruins of Carnuntum.

Prominent Baroque estates such as Petronell castle traditionally featured a contained hunting preserve. This fenced area, usually containing a pond or pool of some kind, would be used to trap red deer, roe deer and wild boar all year, so that the nobility could then come together for a great hunting occasion.

The Tiergarten of today is a beautiful natural setting for a walk, popular for its sense of peace and safety.

Petronell Castle.

Petronell Castle served as a family residence, museum and the heart of the estate for a period of some 350 years, from 1656 to 2006.

Owing to various family circumstances, the castle has not been owned by the family since 2006, when it passed into a new ownership. It has since been searching for a new purpose.

In the 1990s, the castle served as the setting for several Hollywood films. Charlie Sheen, Chris O’Donnell and Kiefer Sutherland filmed scenes for The Three Musketeers at Petronell Castle, which also provided the setting for Luciano Pavarotti and Elton John’s music video “Live Like Horses”.
