History: According to legend, the castle first emerged from the remains of a Roman castle and was first mentioned in the records as "Veste Ort" (fortress city) in around 909. The massive tower gate and a number of window and door jambs were built by Emperor Friedrich III (1440 - 1493). The Seeschloß boasts an extremely picturesque triangular courtyard with arcades and Late Gothic exterior steps (1550); a graffito dating back to 1578 records the "Gößhöh" water level from the Traunsee lake flood.
