/ 800 years of Freudenstein
Built in the early Middle Ages, Schloss Freudenstein was probably commissioned by
the Eysenbrands of Freudenstein. The castle was owned by an aristocratic family,
the Fuchs von Fuchsbergs, from the 15th century until the end of the 19th century,
when it was bought by Baron Heinrich von Siebold. The baron, who was a secretary
to the Austro-Ungarian legation, had the estate substantially extended and renovated.
In 1968, Bernhard Walterscheid-Müller came into ownership of the castle and turned
it into a conference centre after some renovation works.
In 1987, Dr. Hans Meraner of San Michele became the new owner.
Today, the castle is owned by the Fink-Gostner family, who commissioned further
renovation works in 2016 with a view to making the castle an elegant venue for
private and corporate events.
