Baroque Halbturn palace

The former hunting and summer residence of the Imperial family was built in 1711 by Lucas von Hildebrandt, one of the most important Austrian representatives of the late Baroque school of architecture, under the reign of Emperor Charles VI. Through his daughter, Empress Maria Theresa, the castle came into the family of Habsburg-Lothringen.

A special jewel of the palace is the ceiling fresco “Allegory of Time and Light”, which was executed in 1765 by Franz Anton Maulbertsch. Today the castle Halbturn is owned by Markus Königsegg-Aulendorf, the adopted son of Paul Waldbott Bassenheim, a direct descendant of the Archduke’s family.

The deceased and his wife Marie Therese, born Wickenburg, have created a diverse experience for visitors. Halbturn provides the framework for numerous exhibitions as well as the varied concert series “Halbturn Castle Concerts”. The castle is open for visitors from mid-April to late October.

The extensive palace park is the only such park in the northeastern Burgenland. The one-hundred-year old, beautifully developed garden landscapes are preserved in their original beauty. Since the Second World War the park has been open to the public as a year-round oasis for those seeking relaxation.
