For numerous centuries, this feudal structure served as the residence for the esteemed Heidegg family. However, today it stands as the epicenter of history and culture in the Seetal valley. This living museum immerses visitors in the tales and traditions of noble families, and the essence of the past is further rekindled with a leisurely stroll through the expansive park featuring a captivating rose garden.

Allocating ample time to explore Castle Heiden is highly recommended, as this former manor of the distinguished Heiden family now hosts regular events within the context of the Seetal valley’s history and culture center. Within the historically rich walls and chambers, visitors are transported back 800 years, delving into the castle’s history, its environs, and the lifestyles of the time.

This living museum provides a glimpse into the daily routines and customs of its former aristocracy. The attic transforms into a majestic playground and enchanting castle, inviting children to don the roles of princes and princesses, indulging in hours of imaginative play. The sprawling park, adorned with vineyards, romantic pathways, fragrant rose gardens, and a grand alley of chestnut trees, culminates in a delightful coffee and cake experience at the castle café – the perfect finale to a captivating and enjoyable visit for all.
