In addition to substantial parts of the Romanesque castle from the year 1130 to make numerous pieces of furniture, such as weapons, furniture and beamed ceiling, reliefs and the chapel, as well as one of the most beautiful views over Vienna, the castle, to a year-round attractive cultural institution. The present castle was built in 19th Century restored house of Liechtenstein and is still located in their property. She served nearly 200 years (1130-1295) as a temporary residence of the family, and embodies a family history 900 years. Moreover, it has in the last decades of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th century served as a museum of the Castle family.

Already in the 19th Century guides were already offered by the Lichtenstein Castle in Maria Grossenzersdorf. This over 100 year old tradition is the cornerstone of today's guided tours of the castle rooms. Unlike before today can however most of the year, the castle can be visited and the doors are open to all curious.
