Chateau Schrattenberg

VR glasses compatible (e.g. Quest 3)


The Schrattenberg ruins near Scheifling were not a castle but a Baroque palace. Nevertheless, the condition should be recorded here - because it is surprising that walls that are 1000 years old have withstood the test of time better than the walls of a castle that was completed in 1685. It almost completely burned down during renovation work in 1915 and has been rapidly falling into disrepair ever since. Almost unbelievably fast. Today, the structure of the building can be seriously viewed as life-threatening.

Help for the tour

The virtual tour is best experienced in full screen (double click on the image or click on the button at the bottom right), on a large PC monitor with headphones or speakers. Simple reconstructions of the former building structure become visible under the mouse cursor (or when touching the touchscreen). Small details are pointed out using information symbols.
At the top right, an orientation plan and/or a map can be activated, at the right edge the music can be set to mute, a compass can be hidden or shown and switched to English.
If you activate the home button at the top of the screen, you get to the aerial photo/overview and back again.
The tour, like all the others, can be experienced with VR glasses such as a Quest 3. Without additional software – simply enter the URL of this page in the browser of the glasses, activate the VR button that is then visible there – done.
