Short history: Neuhaus Castle was built in the 14th century by the counts of Stubenberg as a fief; a Hans of Neuhaus is first documented in 1375. A fire which destroyed the castle in 1541 is the historic background for a gruesome legend which we will tell you when you are here. A second fire in 1800 marks the beginning of nearly two centuries of decay (today we have lightning rods!). Thanks to the unusual strength and thickness of the walls sufficient substance had survived in 1982 to engage in the revitalization of this impressive structure.
Today, the reconstruction of the castle’s keep – with its height of 32 meters probably the oldest "skyscraper" in Styria – is largely completed, two annexed buildings are in the works. Despite the changeful past of the castle our ghost is quite friendly and sympathetic towards strangers!
