    History

    From a burial mound to an imposing castle

    Sword discoveries, inscription stones and burial mounds prove that Landskron was already inhabited in the 9th century BC. Some of these artefacts are now walled up in the Kronensaal. A document of King Karlmann from 878 reports that the property was donated to the Altötting monastery in Bavaria. In 1028, Count Ozzi appears as the new lord of the manor, followed by the Counts of Sternberg, who built a castle. In 1330, the estate was sold to the Counts of Ortenburg.


    In a document dated 25 July 1351, "Landskron" is named as such for the first time. In 1355, the Habsburgs were the new lords and in 1392 the castle was pledged to the Counts of Cilli. From 1436 to 1447, the Lords of Stubenberg were at Landskron. Emperor Maximilian I donated Landskron to the Order of the Knights of St George in 1511; the castle burnt down in 1542 and could not be rebuilt by the Order. Christoph Khevenhüller zu Aichberg bought Landskron on 8 July 1542.


    In 1552, Emperor Charles V was a guest at Landskron Castle. A son of Khevenhüller, called Bartlmä, was given the lordship of Landskron. He built it into a leisure castle and ensured its fortification. For ten years (from 1584 to 1594) a 150 metre (!) deep well was dug. Around 1600, Landskron was a magnificent Renaissance manor house. The castle was surrounded by a double ring wall with seven towers, the main building had four floors, a high castle tower and was fortified with strong defence towers.


    In 1628, the Protestant nobility had to emigrate and the castle was confiscated. Count Dietrichstein acquired Landskron in 1639. Lightning struck in 1812. The magnificent castle was completely burnt down. In 1953, ÖR Hans Maresch built a first-class café-restaurant in the remains. After his death, his sister, Mrs Christine Kunz, took over the castle ruins and brought the restaurant up to its current state through further renovation work. In 1982, Mrs Kunz handed over her property to her two daughters Elisabeth Catasta and Dipl.-Ing. Susanne Bucher.


    Today, this romantic excursion destination is one of the most beautiful sights in Austria. A good road leads directly to the car park inside the castle. The ruins can be reached by foot along a quiet forest path. Once at the top, you are rewarded with a magnificent view of the Karawanken and Julian Alps mountain ranges, the Villach valley basin, Lake Ossiach and the Kanzelhöhe.
