The Armoury

The Armoury, one of the largest private collections of historical weapons in Austria, presents extraordinary exhibits and unique items from ancient times of war. Superbly equipped and divided into vestibule and cannon room, the Armoury features the equipment volume of nearly 100 heavily armed men – the usual manpower employed to defend a castle of this size.

The progress of knightly weapons technology over the centuries is clearly documented by magnificently crafted armor, helmets, shields, weapons and riding equipment from different eras, as well as an impressive sword collection. The Armory’s vestibule contains an interesting collection of ancient peasant weapons, halberds and small cannons from the 16th century.
