Built in the 14th century, Forchtenstein Castle is one of the most important landmarks of Burgenland. In 1622, Nicholas Esterházy received overlordship of Forchtenstein and Eisenstadt. The fortress underwent complete reconstruction and got the appearance it has today. In 1713, as a result of political and military changes, the castle’s function changed as well. Treasures and curiosities were housed in its treasury and the castle served as an arsenal for the troops.
