Perhaps best known as “Mozart’s Last Castle”, Schloss Stuppach is one of the most popular castles in Lower Austria that is located at the base of the Semmering, right next to a small mountain town. The four-storey castle wasn’t really the official home of the iconic composer per se but it is a place that has a truly strong connection to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The castle’s history traces back to 1130, however, it was only in the 16th- and 17th centuries and after being completely redesigned that it got the recognition it deserved. At the time, Schloss Stuppach was used as a high-calibre international business club that hosts plenty of events from literary to musical purposes. It was also one of the main destinations for famous figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Emperor Franz I of Lorraine.
