    After several owners, most recently the Imperial Count Basselet of la Rosée, the castle and the two Hofmarken Possenhofen and Garatshausen 1834 came into the possession of Duke Max Joseph in Bavaria. His daughter Elisabeth (Sissi) and her numerous siblings spent here - according to their reports - a happy childhood. For the film Sissi from 1955, however, the castle Fuschl on Lake Fuschl in the Salzkammergut served as scenery.

    Possenhofen Castle is a castle complex consisting of the Old Castle, a cubic hipped roof construction with four transverse corner towers, the New Castle, also called horseshoe construction, and the castle chapel, which lies between the two structures and connects them via a corridor. The castle is located in the district Possenhofen the municipality Pöcking in the district of Starnberg, Upper Bavaria. Princess Elisabeth in Bavaria (also known as Sisi), later Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary, spent her childhood here, which later brought the castle to widespread fame.
