We were travelling through Austria and just wanted to take the break from driving. We knew about this castle before and decided just to have a look. It's nice, renovated and taken care of, certainly not a ruin. There are a couple of exibitions in it, science, culture, tradition and so. It's easy to find it and no problem with parking a car (for free). I mean, there are lots and lots of castles in Austria and this one wouldn't make top 10 probably in any category but for me, it was worth spennding an hour or so there.

It was a cool rainy October day. What better way to spend than at Schloss Trautenfels? The Schloss is not the typical Schloss that just shows some rooms with furnishings that might have once been a part of place. This site mixes natural history with displays of history of the region in woodwork, needlework, and life on a farm as well as local folk customs. It is easy to spend 3-4 hours here. Most of very old woodwork as well as the painted ceiling are still there. There are some English publications given when paying admission.

Needed somewhere dry for an iffy day and this place looked interesting from the reviews. The castle itself isn't particularly special from the outside but inside is really interesting. It has been converted into a thoroughly modern museum without damaging or even really obscuring the beautiful old features of the building. As a couple with very limited use of German it would have been nicer to have a little more information in English but what they did provide was useful. Especially fun was the finale of the spiral staircase with the piano wire - even without kids! Didn't visit the outside as the weather was so poor. It's a shame there's no cafe so make sure you time a visit accordingly or take your own food

Enjoyed the many displays of the history of the area around Liezen. I came away with a much better understanding of life of the miners, lumbermen and farmers who settled the area.

There was so much to see here and I virtually had the place to myself. Countryside museum with an insight into the culture of the area. Another exhibition on local geology and more. Fabulous views from the top of the tower - which you reach via a circular stairway made, in part, of piano keys so you can play a tune as you go up and down!
