Grub Castle

The Burggrub is a partially preserved hill fort from the 11th century in the village of Grub at the Great Taffa , about 2 km southwest of knives in Lower Austria's Waldviertel . In 1558 it came to Veit Albrecht von Puchheim . Since the castle was not redesigned after 1500, it still shows its late medieval character today . The castle includes the keep , the remains of the palace and the rebuilt castle chapel .

In 1970 the couple Franz Josef (1914–2006) and Maria Magdalena Hampapa bought the ruins of Grub for 45,000 shillings to save them from demolition. In the years that followed, the work of the owners and volunteers laid the foundation for the castle's present-day appearance. In this way, numerous valuable components could be secured and preserved. Franz Josef Hampapa, passed the castle on to friends with the request that it be kept in a medieval style.

It was partially restored under the supervision of the Federal Monuments Office and after consultation with members of the Technical University in Vienna (see Castle Chapel).
