1,000 years. One castle. Many stories.

Our castle. INVITES.

Schloss Pichlarn in Styria's Ennstal valley. Your destination. Our. pleasure.

The air is alive. The earth crunches beneath your feet. Relaxation is just a few steps away. This place invites us on the holiday of a lifetime in Styria. Schloss Pichlarn has lots to offer: hotel, restaurant, events, spa, golf. And so much more.

A question of time.

The castle is well aware of its unique location. Having stood for over 1,000 years amidst the Styrian forests of the Ennstal valley, the proud Grimming mountain and rolling green hills, the castle loves traditions both new and old. Style, comfort, luxury and exceptional service – this is nothing new in the 5-star hotel, but will also never get old. The guests love the authentic atmosphere, the rooms and suites offer space to spread out, the castle creates a place to take time out in Styria’s holiday region of Schladming-Dachstein. The surrounding area beckons with ski slopes and the golf course, idyllic villages and lakes, vast hiking and biking areas. Indoors, the wellness & spa resort and incredible cuisine provide all you need to recharge your batteries. What’s more, the castle is regularly home to celebrations, events and MICE. Which comes as no surprise, because the air here seems to resonate with the words “I do!”. It’s just a question of time until you hear it. The castle is calling you.

"Savoring the castle’s delightful atmosphere will never lead to regrets.
Though, not savoring it possibly could."
