Schlossschallaburg - Review
One of the most important castles in Lower Austria, the Schallaburg castle has a long history dating back to the latter half of 11th century. Located about 5 kilometres from Melk, the castle really began taking shape in the 16th century. The olden parts of it look more Romanesque while the newer parts were constructed in the style of the Italian palazzi.
- One of the highlights of the castle are 400 terracotta sculptures depicting mythological scenes and characters. It was created by master artist JakobBernecker.
- The idyllic garden that greets the visitors is adorned with historic roses, ornamental wood and herbs, as well as the two apple groves typical of Renaissance time.
- At the entrance there are two large dragons each 30 metres tall and 6 metres high. It’s a recreational spot where children can slide down its mouth from the top.
- The castle is open to private events as well as music events that happen annually.
- Exclusive, evening tours as well as tours in foreign-languages are available on request.
- Group visits should be arranged by prior appointments.
- For a detailed list of events refer website.

Schlossschallaburg, Melk Reviews
Great exhibition, some English explanation under exhibits, not many seats for a large group like ours. Very interesting well worth the visit. But the highlight was the food in the restaurant “super “
Vwry interesting expositions!
Schallaburg Castle is situated only 5 km from Melk. Usually there are interesting exhibitions. The garden and children playground are really nice.
Exhibition "Islam" would better have been called "Turkey and Austria". Apart from Turkey other Islamic countries were barely mentioned and not one word was lost on Indonesia, the country with the largest Muslim population in the world!
realöy good museum nice castle
