Excursion to Schallaburg #2

From the 17th until the 20th century, the castle Schallaburg changed owners several times - it remained private property until 1945 when it was confiscated by the Russians (after the end of World War II Austria was occupied by the Allies). Ten years later the castle became property of the new Republic of Austria. In 1967 the government of Lower Austria bought the castle from the Austrian state.
