Abandoned, Fairytale Castle for Ghosts

This mysterious, fairytale-like abandoned castle was built in 1883 by one of Budapest’s wealthiest tradesman families, the Schlossbergers. After the last descendant went bankrupt the property changed hands several times. During World War II it was first used as a German,  then a Soviet headquarters. It was left to decay until 2005, but now it can be visited any time. This building is truly astonishing due to the stark contrast between the elegant grandeur of its architecture and the decay it is subject to; genuine vintage style to the extreme. Its derelict rooms and hallways have a real vintage, rundown look to it. As the castle has a very unique atmosphere it is quite favoured by filmmakers. The building is so mysterious and fairytale-like because of its complicated design, secret windows and countless chimneys.
