TBS Discovery FPV Burg Kreuzenstein.Leobendorf, Austria.Situated in an idyllic and highly conspicuous position, the picturesque Kreuzenstein Castle is located on a wooded hilltop overlooking the village of Leobendorf, a few kilometers north of Vienna between the cities Korneuburg and Stockerau.The castle’s majestic position, 266 meters above sea level in the immediate vicinity of the intersection of the Danube river and the Vienna Woods, has made it a powerful strategic defense system throughout the centuries and especially during the Middle Ages. From here, the lords of the castle were not only ruling over large parts of the Tulln field and the Korneuburg basin, but were also surveying the nearby city of Vienna as well as vast areas of Lower Austria.The importance of the castle and its location are already dating back to prehistoric times: Thousands of years ago, the present location was the site of a prehistoric hillfort. According to research, the first medieval castle has presumably been constructed at the beginning of the 12th century. The old name "Grizanstein", from which the present name Kreuzenstein (= cross stone) emerged, was first mentioned around 1115 and can likely be traced back to one of the castle’s first lords and owners, Dietrich of Grizanestaine from the Bavarian Formbacher family. Other assumptions about the name’s origin mention a fortress lord called " Grizzo " or the cross of St. Severin, making even the castle’s name itself a fabled legend.By marriage, Dietrich of Grizanestaine’s son-in-law Engelbrecht of Wasserburg became the new lord of Kreuzenstein, whose descendants owned the castle for over a century. During the middle of the 13th century, Kreuzenstein came into the possession of the Habsburg family who had the castle mostly maintained by caretakers and castellans by more than 250 years. The castle’s history was particularly erratic during the 16th and 17th century, with frequently changing owners, among others the Bohemian King George of Podiebrad (whose troops were commanded by Wenzel Wilczek, an ancestor of the present owner), Count Ferdinand of Hardegg, Baron Johann of Herberstein and Count Charles of Saint-Hilaire, who had the military facilities of the castle converted to one of the most powerful strongholds at the gates of Vienna the during the Thirty Years' War. www.kreuzenstein.com/ Quick video edit.Range about 1.1km, total flight distance ~4km.Omnidirectional SWP Antenna, 2.4GHz VTx.
