This castle didn't even get a star in Michelin, but it is one of our favorites. It features the deepest well in central Europe, dug by hand by Turkish prisoners of war. The museum inside includes a field tent from a Turkish commander from the siege of 1683. Also, a fascinating collection of ivory carvings. It also has one of the better collections of armor. The castle is extremely picturesque. If you are near Eisenstadt, don't miss this!
