Mozart's Last Castle, formally known as Schloss Stuppach, was occupied by Count F.A. von Walsegg. The nobleman commissioned Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to compose a score for his late wife, Anna Countess von Walsegg, who died on the property in 1791. Although Mozart passed away before the piece was finished, "Requiem" was completed by composer Franz Xaver Süssmayr in 1792 and was housed in the castle. The estate's historical significance has made it a world-class attraction and includes a club salon, an experience theater, a concert program, and a castle shop, which are included in the purchase of the property. Built in 1130, the residence has also hosted Napoleon, Franz Schubert, Pope Pius VI, Princess Isabelle von Bourbon-Parma, and Emperor Franz Stephan von Lothringen. Its four-story interior spans 50 rooms, including the Requiem chapel, the Jardinière, and a dungeon, all furnished with antique items. The exterior is surrounded by manicured gardens and mature trees, along with Austria's dramatic peaks.
