Esterházy Palace, Eisenstadt (Kismarton)
The origin of this Esterhazy Palace dates back to a fortress of the 13th century, which had been rebuilt and enlarged over and over again later on. By today, the castle is a venue for cultural events of high standard, and provides insight into the aristocratic world of the Esterházy princes.
Esterházy Palace is the most important cultural monument of Austria's Burgenland province. Virtually, the princely past and the Esterházy’s life at court come to life in the sumptuously furnished luxurious rooms and halls. The palace is a cultural centre even today: the building still provides the sumptuous scene for various celebrations and social events.
