Situated close to the district town of Grieskirchen on a hill in the Trattnachtal valley, Tollet Castle is the landmark of the community of the same name.

The first documented reference of the fortification goes back to the year 1170, to the possession of Count Ortolf von Tollet. After several changes of ownership, Tollet came into the possession of the Jörgers (1400 to 1625). The castle was rebuilt in 1607 in the Renaissance style. After that it came into the hands of several families, thus it also belonged to Adam Count Herberstorff, the creator of the Frankenburg dice game, then to the Counts of Sprintzenstein and since 1845 to the Counts Revertera.

In the 10th century the Renaissance building was remodeled. From 1946 to 1976 the castle served as a rural educational home. Since 1980, it has housed the district home, where a representative cross-section of the district's cultural heritage has been on display, the Upper Austrian State Bee Museum and a Wagner Museum. Incidentally, the premises are still used for various exhibitions and events.

Particularly worth seeing are the artistically forged fountain in the courtyard and the arcade railings, which date back to the time of construction. From the tower there is a magnificent distant view of the Trattnachtal valley.

Tollet Castle was completely renovated in 2009. On the second floor there are eight apartments. On the ground floor there are the municipal office and the Bezirksheimathausverein. More information about the history of this magnificent Renaissance castle can be found on the Internet at
