Our castle. ENVELOPED.

The regions around Schloss Pichlarn.

So much to see. Is there ever enough time? Marco, Timotheus and Bernd have treated themselves to a week off. The Austrian Alps and their attractions are calling. In summer they want to hike; both the days and their legs are long enough. Winter will entice them back, the castle knows. For when the regions blanket themselves in snow, they want to be seen by lovers of wintry landscapes. With three skiing and hiking regions and countless excursion destinations, there is no end to the delights to be had here. And in the midst of it all stands the castle as an event location, wellness, spa and golf hotel.

Sights worth seeing.

Exhilarating excursion destinations with history & tradition.

As white as snow.
