Wildenstein Castle in Bad Ischl
The ruined Wildenstein castle dominates the district of Kaltenbach and has a fantastic view over the town. First mentioned in 1392 as “Veste Wildenstein”, from 1419 Wildenstein Castle was residence of the Imperial Burggrave who reigned over the “Ischlland”.
The fortified structure included towers, round paths, circular walls & drawbridges. The castle had 2 disastrous fires, the first in August 1593, and the second in 1715. Sin ce then the castle has been left to deteriorate. For years, the “Ischler Heimatverband” association has worked prevent the castle from falling into total decay. Today, the castle yard is a comfortable place to take a break and enjoy the view. The castle is open all year and entrance is free. There are two walks up to the castle starting to the left of the Katrin-Seilbahn Cable Car valley station.
