Schloss Rothenthurn – The Castle of Rothenthurn
The Castle of Rothenthurn occupies a prominent position on the green, southern slopes above the village of Rothenthurn in the Drau valley. The building, which includes a small and beautiful private chapel, is notable for its picturesque skyline and romantic setting. The castle, as one sees it today, was mainly constructed in the 17th and 18th centuries, although its foundation and rich history go back as far as the 11th.
Over the course of hundreds of years, Rothenthurn changed ownership many times until 1880 when Constantin and Marianne Graf von Norman-Ehrenfels purchased the domain. They were the great-great-grandparents of the present youthful owner, Georg, Baron Pereira-Arnstein who lives with his wife, Maria, in part of the building.
