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.
