A water castle built on a lake. It was built in the 16th century by the Archbishop of Salzburg. In 1803 Count Arco-Stepperg bought the property and enlarged it.
The abdication of King Ludwig III von Bayem occurred here in 1918. The castle contains an extensive collection of Romanesque art and furniture.

| This castle is architecturally, as
well as in location, one of the most beautiful. How wonderful that
the Arco-Von Moy family was able to keep it throughout the generations.
The Arco Steppberg castle belonged to my ggrandfather's father (through
a morganatic relationship), Count Arco Steppberg. I would like
very much to communicate with Anna Von Moy to learn even more
information regarding the Arco family and where I might obtain
additional history and photographs.

owned and one cannot even get a glimpse of it (even when one pays far
too much for a light lunch at the hotel next door!). The best
"view" is right here--on this webpage, and from one aerial
shot at the beginning of "The Sound of Music."..and remember
that one episode of "The Scarecrow and Mrs. King"?

is a private property with people living in it. Kind regards, Anna Gräfin von Moy
