Description

You'll leave by coach from Melk for a visit to Artstetten Castle. Used as a summer residence by the Habsburg dynasty, the castle is the resting place of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg. The museum in the castle features a permanent exhibition that provides insights into the life of the crown prince and his family. The castle is surrounded by an enchanting park, offering a fairytale-like setting for all who visit. The spacious park holds glorious chestnut tree avenues and a vintage bathing pavilion and is considered to be one of the most important historical parks in Austria. After the tour, you'll return on board in Melk.
