The medieval castle has been owned by the market town of Atzenbrugg since 1977. The Committee for the Support of the Schubert Memorial at Schloss Atzenbrugg strongly advocated the cultural use of the property and in 1986 opened a museum in the main wing dedicated to Franz Schubert and his circle of friends. Six years later, the listed old wing of the castle was completed. The presentation focuses on the life and work of Franz Schubert and his friends, the so-called Schubertianer, who met for a few days each year between 1820 and 1823 at Schloss Atzenbrugg to make music together and enjoy cheerful conviviality, celebrating summer festivals in a rural atmosphere. You can also visit the extensive castle park and the baroque garden pavilion ("Schubert's Komponierhäuschen / Schubert’s Composer's Cottage") situated on a hill.
