A tale of two palaces in an age of opulence
The UNESCO Heritage Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape encompasses 200 square kilometers, two chateaus, gardens, lakes, forests and structures built to delight the wealthy owners and their guests, from a Roman aqueduct to a towering minaret. It all belonged to the Liechtensteins, a powerful family originally from Styria, Austria. Multiple tours are available.
