The famed banking family sold their 5,412-hectare estate in Austria for about $112 million, according to Mansion Global.

The estate was purchased by Baron Albert von Rothschild in 1875 and was the site of forestry, energy and other business enterprises along with the family’s homes and palaces in the picturesque woodlands. In World War II the property was taken over by Nazis and by Russian occupiers. The land returned to the family’s administration in 1952.

Cord Prinzhorn of Prinzhorn Holding’s paper and packaging company bought the property, according to the Austrian brokerage who handled the deal.
