Artiom Ganin is in Austria talking to the owner of Schloss Seisenegg in the town of Viehdorf in Lower Austria. Maximilian Mautner Markhof's ancestors originally came from Bohemia, which is now part of the Czech Republic. He represents a family who for centuries have been involved in brewery and distillery businesses. Maximilian told me that the biggest challenge is to reside in a big house and face what he described as "overtaxation" from the state. He also finds it really upsetting that people are jealous as they think living in a medieval castle is pure enjoyment. However, in reality it means running it, maintaining it and even trying to get warm, as the place - just like any proper medieval castle - is rather cold. Still, Maximilian believes making a hotel out of such a property is not the way to go because castles have always been intended for one family only. Period!
