This Neo-Gothic castle is included in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage. Formerly a Gothic stronghold, it had been rebuilt in Renaissance and in Baroque style. The castle gained its final form in 1846 – 1859 with a pseudo-Gothic adaptation. The castle is surrounded by a magnificent park with many romantic buildings (a minaret, John’s castle, Apollo’s chapel, three Graces, St. Hubert chapel) and an intricate network of lakes with artificial islands.

More detail about the object:

The modern appearance of Lednice Chateau, in the English neo-Gothic style, dates from 1843–1850. The showcase halls on the chateau ground floor are exceptional primarily due to the rich wood carving that decorates the walls and the coffered ceilings; the parquet floors, using a variety of timbers and other fine details, are testimony of the very best craftsmanship and the refined tastes of the Princely House of Liechtenstein. The world-famous showpiece of the interior is the carved spiral staircase in the chateau library. The 1stfloor apartments offer a glimpse into the private worlds of family members and thefin de siècle lifestyle. The second floor was laid over to the children, their nannies and house guests. Adjacent to the eastern walls of the chateau is the palm house, the oldest of its kind in Europe, offering strolls through the tropics and a subtropical oasis of flowering orchids and other exotic plants even in the depths of winter. The chateau is framed superbly by the French garden and the extensive English park with ponds, islands and minor romantic structures. Besides boat trips around the chateau’s meandering stretch of the Dyje, or coach rides through the park, guests can also enjoy a superb display of falconry, try their hand at archery or enjoy the atmosphere of a promenade concert.

The best known of the buildings in the chateau park is the Minaret, a viewing tower that offers panoramic views of the entire Valtice-Lednice Cultural Landscape.
