The history of this wedding castle in Bavaria all started with a wedding. In 1898 Baron Wilhelm von Faber’s eldest daughter Ottilie married Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen, a son of an old aristocratic family. By the will of her grandfather, whichever of his grandchildren succeeded to his estate should carry on not just the company name but also the family name Faber. And so, the new name of counts von Faber-Castell was born.
Famous for its pencils and art supplies, the Faber-Castell family name is known all around the world. For many years the impressive 19th-century castle in Stein used to be the family’s private residence before becoming home to American soldiers, international journalists and intellectuals from all corners of the world.
