Built on a small island linked to the mainland by a landing stage, Ort Castle is Gmunden's favourite postcard image. The onion-domed tower doorway leads into the charming courtyard, lined on two sides by arcaded galleries in the style of the 16C. Archduke Johann Salvator, Prince of Tuscany, purchased the estate in 1878 and took the name of Ort, but was later forced to flee Austria after Franz Joseph had deprived him of his nationality because of his political views.
