Schloss Burgstall

Wies

The first fortification on this place was probably built at the end of the 12th or beginning of the 13th century. Burgstall was at that time sovereign. Before that it had probably belonged to the Eppensteiners.

The castle was originally called Lackenberg. In 1240 Frederick II gave the castle to Kunigund, the daughter of the knight Albert von Purchstall. In 1280 the manor was mentioned for the first time. At that time Ulrich Schenk von Rabenstein had given it to the Bishop of Seckau. In 1318 the bishopric lent the manor to Rudolf von Tunau. Later it belonged to the Wallsee family. In 1336 Konrad von Purchstall and his brother Friedrich are mentioned as lords of the castle. Around the middle of the 14th century the dominion was lent to the Wallseer and administered by their burgrave.

Paul von Eibiswald bought the castle, which in the meantime had become a sovereign again, in 1476. His sons were enfeoffed with it by the emperor in 1478. Georg von Eibiswald began building the present Renaissance castle in the last quarter of the 16th century. It was finished in 1594. The Barons of Eibiswald were followed by the Counts of Schrottenbach, then the Herberstein and the Purgay. Ignaz Ernst von Purgay sold the castle to Anton Franz Hoffer in 1800. In 1820 it belonged to Johann Drasch and from 1857 to the Princes of Liechtenstein.

After the province of Styria acquired the castle in 1954, it established an agricultural home economics school for girls in it. Today, a technical school for agriculture and nutrition is housed in the castle. (c) wehrbauten.at
