The main block facing the street was erected just before the turn to the 17th century.
After the " Herren von Fellabrunn", a noble family first mentioned around 1115, the castle had many owners, such as the Abensberg-Traun and Wilczek families.

Concerning the the photo with the dog in the foreground: Our Magyar Vizsla Timo in the summer landscape around Niederfellabrunn (photo taken 2004). In the background just the tops of the two towers of the castle protrude; more to the left, still further away, a Hallstatt period (bronze age) Tumulus can be seen.

Joseph von Eichendorff, the well-known poet of German romanticism, mentions visits to the castle in his diary.
The wife of Count Walsegg, whose decease led her husband to order the requiem from Mozart, was born in Niederfellabrunn castle. A very interesting Link in this context is http://www.angelfire.com/bc2/mozart/photos2.html. Look at Niederfellabrunn in Gallery 2!
One of the first performances of Mozart's Requiem took place in the neighbouring village Niederhollabrunn (Niederfellabrunn is now a part of Niederhollabrunn).
From very old cultural soil in these days a new cultural/musical initiative has emerged.
