Emperor Maximilian did not rebuild Tratzberg but exchanged the ruin for a castle of the rich silver mine owners Tänzel.
In 1500 they built the first late Gothic part of today's Tratzberg Castle in an unusually splendid and lavish manner and had it decorated with extraordinarily ornate marble, wood and ironwork.
