Marchegg Palace Gardens

In the 13th century, a moated castle was built in Marchegg as an essential part of the mediaeval fortifications.

n the 18th century, the castle was converted into baroque style. Instead of the defence installations and the moat, a forecourt was built, which was planned by Christian Alexander Oedtl. Later, the palace grounds were extended by English gardens and the regularly laid-out garden at the gardener house, which has been preserved until today.

With its grand old tree population, its statues and the baroque entrance area, the forecourt looks like an attractive part of a park. The wooded English garden today accommodates the mausoleum of the Palffy-Erdödy family, which was built around 1925.
