The Primmersdorf Castle is located in the eponymous Gutsweiler Primmersdorf in the municipality of Raabs an der Thaya in the Waidhofen an der Thaya district in the northern Waldviertel in Lower Austria . The castle with its outbuildings is a listed building ( list entry ).


The castle, built in the middle of the 17th century as a successor to a medieval castle from the 13th century, was owned by the Herzogenburg Abbey from 1696 to 1851 and was used as a dairy . The plans for the three-story baroque building with volute gables on the long sides are attributed to Jakob Prandtauer . The last noble owner, Freiherr von Freyenfels, handed the ruined castle over to the state of Lower Austria. Today in private hands and restored, it has been expanded with apartments and an art studio. The Schüttkasten Primmersdorf association has been using the Schüttkasten for exhibitions and events since 1993.


The irregular one to two-storey four-wing complex, which has been modified by renovations, is surrounded by farmyards and a park laid out in 1860. The Primmersdorf Schüttkasten , built in 1706, is also located on the site .
