In the Styrian municipality of Trofaiach in the Austrian district of Leoben there stands a so-called Stockschloss also known as the Oberdorf castle complex. And even though I have no idea why it is literally called "cane castle", I can tell you that it is owned by the noble Mayr von Melnhof family and is used as a venue. Why I'm telling you all of this? Prince Hans-Adam recently visited to talk about his book "The State in the Third Millenium" and that is not the most exciting of news. In more standard news, Hereditary Prince Alois received the letters of credence of two new ambassadors from Switzerland and Austria on July 4th.
