the castle is situated in the area called Pigeno to the north east of Gand and just below Schloss Englar.History: the whole building seems to look like a war building, but that is completely wrong. Before Blasius Khuen von Belasi renovated the castle in 1550 to what it is today, it was just a rather inconspicuous building. As Friedrich fought against Heinrich von Rottenburg, there was still a tower attached to the building. In 1434 the building was loaned to farmers and in 1510 the Knight Jakob Fuchs von Fuchsberg sold the castle to Casper Pernstich, who was not an aristocrat. When he died 27 years later, his son sold the building to the three aristocratic brothers Georg, Matthias and Balsius von Khuen from Nonsberg. Architectural style: Blasius von Khuen was the ancestor of the Khuen Belasi family of today and he also handed down his title of Justice of the Peace to his descendants. The family coat of arms is engraved in stone in the entrance to Schloss Gandegg. The chapel Maria Schnee was added to the castle in 1698. Tip: classical concerts are often performed here. Peculiarities: the rooms of the castle are magnificently furnished, wooden coffered ceilings; wing doors with inlays, and stoves from the 16th and 17th centuries are just some of the examples. Possibilities for walking: you pass Schloss Gandegg on your way from St Michael to the Ice Holes and you can also look at Schloss Englar, which is situated just above Schloss Gandegg.
