Castle Bizeljsko (Wissel) is situated on a rocky hill above the village Bizeljsko. Castle gives the village its characteristics appearance. In written sources is first mentioned in 1404, when the region was inhabited by knights Wissell. The castle has a medieval layout. Throughout the centuries has played an important role as a defensive post. Today the Castle Bizeljsko has Renaissance and Baroque features. Renaissance form can be seen at the entrance, when the Chapel of St. Hieronim with rich Baroque altar was added to a building. The chapel originates from 1623. The arch of the chapel and three rooms on the first floor are decorated with stuccos from the late 18 th century. Rooms were built as a series of continually spaces. A rectangular courtyard is surrounded by four two -storeyed tracts. On the west side are at the corners round towers. In the Castle Bizeljsko did not keep the valuables, because everything took away its last owners, counts Windischgraetz. Today is in the castle the wine chapel Klakocar. The family Klakocar also restored the castle rooms. We can see the rich wine cellar and the castle chapel.
