Austria is full of wonderful castles, chateaus and castle ruins. One of those is Castle Mauterndorfd, situated near the city of Maunterndorf in the Austrian region of Salzburg. The castle was built on the old Roman road which led to the Roman city named Juvavum (now Salzburg). Originally it was a residence of a Roman administrator responsible for the area.
At the end of the 19th century, the castle was bought by a Jewish Prussian Army doctor who served in Berlin, Hermann Epstein. He rebuilt the castle and because of that he was awarded the title “knight” by the emperor Franz Joseph I. A museum has been established on the ground of the castle in 2003 and since then many visitors come to the area to have a look at this important part of Salzburg´s history.
The virtual tour offers a look at some of the instruments used in feudal Austria. It is a chance to experience and learn about the ups and downs of daily life in medieval society. On the website of the castle, you´ll find a couple of videos that tell the history of some of the more significant periods of this place and show the view at the village Mauterndorf as well as the view over the whole castle form the outside.
