Duke Sigmund of Austria had the royal castle rebuilt as a town residence around 1470. It was used by the Habsburgs in the 15th and 16th centuries as an elegant base when dealing with administrative business. The emperor Maximilian I and the family of Ferdinand I also stayed there. Today the castle offers a unique opportunity to become acquainted with customs and life in the late Middle Ages. Among the many exhibits are everyday tools and implements, kitchen utensils, one of the oldest decorated majolica stoves, frescos, antique musical instruments, arms and the royal bedrooms.
