The Franzensburg is a water castle built between 1801 and 1836 in the style of an old castle. The name comes from Emperor Franz, who built the castle on an artificial island next to the already existing Castle of Laxenburg.
The castle was designed as a museum and consists of two parts: Ritterburg and Knappenburg. With its recourse to medieval forms of construction, Franzensburg is a milestone on the way to historicism.
The castle and the surrounding castle grounds are part of a 250-hectare castle park, designed in the style of an English landscape garden in the late 18th century. Today the park is a popular tourist destination. Guided tours are offered in the castle and theaters are held in summer.
