the new interactive puzzle adventure for families, tour groups and company outings.
The history of the castle ruin which is around 150 metres long on the right bank of the Danube extends back to the 12th century. Find out why the “Rosengärtlein” (“Rose Garden”) was so feared and who the “Hounds of Kuenring” were.
Experience the castle how you want to! We offer both classic tours as well as fairytale tours with the storyteller Dena Seidl. Do you want to explore the castle on your own? No problem with the individually available audio tours.
Peter Hruska and his team look forward to treating you to some culinary delights. Dishes are cooked in the medieval castle kitchen – preferably with products of regional origin. From local to haute cuisine and medieval dishes – enjoy the excellent skills of our chef and the seasonally changing selection on our menu!
In our shop, you will find mementos, souvenirs, books and gifts for the whole family! There is also a castle café there with chilled and hot drinks as well as small snacks – especially for hikers who need some light refreshments. Opening times: The shop and castle café are open all day during the opening times of the castle ruin!
Special events require a special setting. If you want to celebrate your birthday, wedding or a company anniversary at a unique location, then you have come to exactly the right place.
