Castle Doors - Historical Origin And Design Inspiration

Burg Güssing is a castle in southern Burgenland, Austria. On June 30, 1524, the castle was acquired by the Batthyny family, who retain ownership to this day. Established around 1157, a small wooden fort is said to have been built by Count Wolfer, and it is thought though that the first occupants were the Benedictines. The name of "Our Holy Mary of Snow" as the chapel are mentioned in documents dating back to this time, which would indicate that there was at least a crude abbey or monastery at the site.

Ownership of the structure later passed to King Béla III, who strengthened the original wooden structure with stone walls. Since 1198, Güssing became known as "Novum Castrum", (New Castle, from which Német in Hungarian is taken). 1246 king Bela IV for a brief period of time entrusted the castle to the Order of Saint John (1246) and later to his treasurer Mauricius (1263). In 1272 Heinrich II from the dynasty of the "Counts of Güssing" and a descendant of Count Wolfer regained ownership of Güssing. Evidently the family though had been involved in several wars against the royal dynasties. They conducted wild raids and were the cause of widespread unrest in the area. Finally, in 1289/90 Duke Albrecht deprived the counts of Güssing of their power with the permission of Ladislaus IV.

Under Emperor Sigismund the castle went to the dynasty of Cheh de Sró and Léva in 1391. However, their descendants acquired such heavy debt that all their assets had to be mortgaged and in 1458 Nikolaus jlaki became owner of the castle and ruler of Güssing.

The Modern Castle Structures like "Francis" gate", "Adam"s gate", "Widow's tower" and numerous other towers and bastions still remain today. In 1750 "low built prisons" are mentioned as being a part of the castles plan, and until 1800 a torture chamber existed on the grounds.
