Forchtenstein is a town in the district of Mattersburg in the Austrian state of Burgenland. It is the location of Forchtenstein Castle, one of the many palaces of the famous Esterházy family.It consists of two subdivisions which were formerly separate towns: Forchtenau and Neustift an der Rosalia .PopulationThe castle gained a nickname as the "Castle of Fear". The castle has one red and one black tower. The castle boasted many torture chambers including one called the Pit of Oblivion, a deep pit where torture victims would be strung upside down and deprived of food and water until they died. The Pit of Oblivion is located in the black tower. Although many of the rooms are now available to the public either for rental or visitation, one room still remains private and inaccessible and is the treasure room of the castle.Take a look at our Austria trip itinerary tool to refine the details of your trip to Forchtenstein.
