  • The villa was built in 1890 by the Austrian South Railway Company.The property was briefly occupied by well-known Viennese physician Julius Glax, who was the founder of spa tourism in the town. However, the history of the villa is then linked to the ecret scandal concerning Archduke Otto Franz Josef Karl Ludwig Maria of Austria, who was the younger brother of heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne Franz Ferdinand d’Este,who was murdered in 1914 in Sarajevo.Otto Franz was known for his wild lifestyle and he was unfaithful to his wife Maria of Saxony extensively. He also had two illegitimate children from his affair with ballerina Maria Schleinzer and this villa was allocated to Dr.von Hortenau, who married the ballerina and declared the children his own,so that the affair was kept hidden from the public. This villa was consequently home to the niece and the nephew of the crown prince of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy
