The Archduke Franz Ferdinand Museum is open daily from April 1 to November 1 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (ticket office closes at 5 p.m.!) In the winter it is open only to group tours that make prior arrangements.
The enchanting Artstetten Castle is situated high above the Danube in a charming park and is flanked by seven characteristic towers. This is a place of commemoration for Crown Prince Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie Duchess of Hohenberg. Both were assassinated in Sarajevo in 1914 and have found their final resting place here. The Archduke Franz Ferdinand Museum provides visitors with a look into the eventful life of the crown prince and his family.
To explore his multi-faceted life, a different special topic is picked up each year and presented to visitors.
