Riegersburg Castle - Riegersburg, Austria

What started in 1122 as a small keep on a dormant volcano ended up in the hands of Baroness Katharina Elisabeth von Wechsler, who improved on the castle in the 17th century. Normally castles are historically the domain of men, but this one was not. Unfortunately for the Baroness, her handmaiden was accused of witchcraft and sorcery and was killed. Nowadays in the castle, there is a museum dedicated to strong women and a second devoted to witchcraft in the region.
