Coincidence can bring about anything. Indeed, it’s entirely by coincidence that Michal Sendivoj, a poor Polish nobleman and alchemist at the court of Rudolph II, came into ownership of the chateau in Kravaře. Emperor Ferdinand II gifted the chateau in Kravaře to him, thus solving two problems at once: he both cleared his debt between the Habsburgs and Sendivoj for his services, and also found a new lord for the previously confiscated Kravaře estate.
And thus began the flourishing of the chateau into what we see today. This was not the work of Sendivoj himself, but of the husband of his daughter, the Brandenburg nobleman Eichendorff. The latter’s family brought the castle to its current stunning glory, but had to sell the chateau as a result of the debt it incured.

Today, the chateau belongs to the city of Kravaře and is used as its representative chambers. Visitors to the chateau can admire the work of baroque architects, of which the most historically valuable feature is the interior of the chateau chapel that was spared from the fire of 1937. The chapel's painted ceilings from 1730 are exquisite, capturing the assumption of the Virgin Mary.

In addition to illustrating the life of the Eichendorff family, the chateau is also home to a museum. There, visitors can gain an understanding of how "regular" people in Kravaře and Hlučínsko once lived.

The chateau is surrounded by a gorgeous park with hundreds of different species of trees and shrubs. The golf course is one of the chateau garden's most popular features.
