The first local aristocratic family once lived on the castle ruins of Eppenstein. They came from Bavaria and founded a powerful noble family: the Eppensteiner. When the castle high above the Granitzental, after which it was named, was first mentioned in 1160, the Eppensteiners were already extinct. The red-white-red of their flag was raised by the Traungau and then the Babenberg - and Austria's national colors emerged from this.
