Schloss Orth / Lake Castle Orth

Andreas
Description
Lake Castle Orth The palace is named after the Ort family -- powerful people in this region in the 11th and 12th centuries. When their power waned, the kingdom began changing hands frequently. More often than not, it was bought or sold, but occasionally gained new owners through death or marriage. Today, young couple flock to the island for wedding ceremonies, but are probably unaware of the most famous marriage that happened here. In 1890, Archduke Johann Nepumuk Salvator married Milli Stubel, right after renouncing his position in the Habsburg empire and changing his name to Johann Orth -- after this castle. #Gmunde #Gmunden #Lake_Castle_Orth #Oberösterreich #Upper_Austria__Schloß_Orth
