Forchtenstein Castle: Heroes - Treasures - Loot

Explore the Esterházy princes's private art gallery – it's one of the largest collections of Baroque portraiture in Europe.

In the heart of the imposing Forchtenstein Castle lies one of Europe's most extensive and far-reaching private art collections. See full-size portraits of the Esterházy princes rubbing stately shoulders with the likes of Attila the Hun, Charlemagne, and Vlad the Impaler in a stunning 17th-century gallery, and enjoy the Princely Tally-ho! hunting exhibition, dedicated to the thrill of the chase.

The Esterházy princes were many things, but modest they were not. Avid social climbers, they were desperate to establish the Esterházy dynasty as a major world power to rival the greatest in history.

Their own Hall of Ancestors portrait gallery is a testament to this self-aggrandizing spirit. The life-sized portraits will give you a taste for the opulence of the Esterházy lifestyle. Enjoy lush Baroque settings, traditionally regal Hungarian costumes, and sparkling jewelry.

Continue your journey with the Princely Tally-ho! exhibition, which brings together paintings, weaponry and porcelain designs to study and celebrate the noble tradition of hunting.
