Wasserburg Castle (St. Pölten)
The castle was first mentioned in 1185 when a Dietmar von Wasserberg was mentioned. Another important representative of this family was Heinrich von Wasserberg, the brother-in-law of the minstrel Ulrich von Liechtenstein at the beginning of the 13th century . In 1283 Otto von Haslau and Wulfing von Arnstein are mentioned as lords of Wasserburg. A short time later the castle came into the possession of the Puchbergers through marriage .
In 1515, Christoph von Toppel sold some other possessions as well as Wasserburg to Christoph von Zinzendorf. For almost 400 years, Wasserburg was the family seat of the Zinzendorf and Baudissin-Zinzendorf families . After the death of Karl von Zinzendorf in 1813 the property went to Heinrich August Graf von Baudissin , who took the name and coat of arms of Zinzendorf. In 1912 the Counts Baudissin-Zinzendorf-Pottendorf sold the property to Count Heinrich Fünfkirchen . In 1915 a temporary rest home for soldiers was built in the castle. In 1923 Carl Hugo Graf von Seilern and Aspang bought Gut Wasserburg, which is still owned by the family today.
Parts of the castle are permanently inhabited by the Seilern family, other parts can be rented. The St. Pölten registry office also holds weddings in the castle on request.
