Falkenstein Castle Ruin

Fortress, Historical sites, Museum, Ruins, Scenic lookout


The mighty border fortress built around 1050 on a limestone cliff above the romantic wine village of Falkenstein is today the most famous castle ruin in the Weinviertel with a fantastic view. Particularly worth seeing are a natural limestone cave, historic vaults with artefacts and documentation on the history of the Anabaptist movement, and a replica of a historic wooden galley.
