Photo and description
An unusual structure with corner square bay windows, more like built-in turrets, crowned with elongated hipped roofs, since 1970 has been turned into the City Hall of Zell am See. It is located just off the Brooker Federal Road. This building was previously known as Rosenberg Castle. The castle complex includes gardens, a park and a garage.
This mansion was built on the site where the vineyards used to be, at the end of the 16th century by the order of two brothers - Karl and Hans Rosenberger. After Hans' death in 1604, his property was inherited by three sons - Hans, Georg and Hans Christoph. Georg died in 1614 and Hans sold his share to his brother Hans Christoph. Thus, the Rosenberg estate became the property of one person - Hans Christoph Rosenberger. At all, Throughout its history, Rosenberg Castle has changed many owners: it was inherited, sold, mortgaged. In 1820 it was acquired by Franz von Lurzer, who turned out to be the last private person to own the Rosenberg Palace. He was in charge of it for only 22 years. In 1842 the estate became the seat of the imperial forestry. Since 1928, Rosenberg Castle belonged to the Austrian Republic.
During the Second World War, the Nazis settled here. In 1947, forestry workers returned here. Finally, in 1970, the mansion was acquired by the city authorities of Zell am See. After the reconstruction, the mayor's office and deputies' offices appeared in the castle. From June to December 2009, the palace was closed for renovations, which cost 800 thousand euros.
