At Tabor Castle you will find a true cultural diversity in the midst of old walls. These houses constantly changing art exhibitions, which are not limited to classical painters and sculptors, but also include photography and other artistic crafts. The castle also has a small museum of local history, which presents the old traditions of the building and also exhibits and sells local fine brandy specialities. You can also visit readings and concerts at Tabor Castle and rent rooms for private parties.
A special highlight are the annual opera performances on Tabor, which usually take place in August. In the meantime, this has almost developed into a modern tradition, so that the opera festival in Neuhaus am Klausenbach in 2013 has been celebrating its 10th anniversary. The play for 2014 has already been decided: on the open-air stage "The Wedding of Figaro" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will be shown, which in the middle of the castle and in the open air can probably spread an even more impressive atmosphere than it already does.
The building has probably the longest history in the whole district of Jennersdorf. Between 1618 and 1648, the castle was considered a safe place to stay for Styrian Protestants who were caught between the fronts during the religious war.
It was only in the course of the 19th century that the building was completely used as a residence and was actually permanently inhabited until 1964.
In 2002 and 2003, the historic building underwent a complete refurbishment and renovation and since then has shone in the splendour in which it can be found today.
