Biking at Romantik Hotel Schloss Pichlarn, Austria

Our castle. GOES TO GREAT LAKES TO INSPIRE.

The most beautiful lakes in Styria.

The castle is built close to the water: all around it are lakes, mountain springs, waterfalls. There is plenty to see in Upper Styria, with an ocean of relaxation available. Rita is a huge fan of the Ennstal nature surrounding the castle, and finds herself back here every summer, dipping her toes into the refreshing water after a satisfying hike. Or discovering new favourite spots along the waterfront on an e-bike tour. On her lakeside tours, Rita allows her thoughts to flow freely, collecting treasured memories. The castle, too, thinks that the nature all around it is well worth “sea”-ing. And recommends a spot of tourism here – on foot, by bike or e-bike – at any time of year.
