Until then the whole Pejačević family lived in Virovitica constantly, and only after that they moved away, living mostly in Vienna. In 1841 the Castle was sold to the family Schaumburg-Lippe that reconstructed the castle and added the first floor. It was the time when the castle got its look that it has today. Also, a park was grown around the castle.
As part of the project “5 to 12 for the Castle” Pejačević Castle was renovated in 2019, the city park was restored, new trees, shrubs and ornamental plants were planted, the promenades in the park were arranged, as well as the promenade in front of Peter Preradović High School, which is decorated with a new, modern fountains. There are also newly designed wooden bridges, each with its own story related to Virovitica (Bridge of Love, Music Bridge, Gymnasium Bridge, Bridge Portal, Mirror Bridge). The castle is now home to the City Museum of Virovitica with a new permanent exhibit called “The Wooden Age”, and it houses the Tourist Information Center with a souvenir shop.
