State Rooms (basic tour)

The tour will take you to the most splendid rooms of Vranov chateau and introduce you to the most important owners – the counts of Althann, who initiated the magnificent building transformation during the baroque and neoclassical periods in the 17th and 18th century.

The tour begins on the inner staircase with prints of the Spanish Riding School from the 18th century and leads into the marble corridor with the portrait gallery of the Althanns. Next you will enter the great baroque apartment with a anteroom, boudoir, bathroom, cabinet and a lady's bedroom. You will next see the grand drawing room, dining room, furnished hall and a bedroom of count Michael Joseph Althann with a toilet cabinet, adorned with exceptionally preserved wall canvas decorations and murals from the neoclassical period. Finally you will enter the monumental Hall of Ancestors, created by the imperial court architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, which is for its architectural design and artistic execution considered on of the most valuable baroque interiors in Central Europe. The tour ends at the souther terrace with a triumphal arch and splendid views of the surrounding landscape, originally designed as a spacious landscape garden.
