For example, the bath fixtures and lighting are top-notch. Our room and sitting area were comfortable and well-designed. There were perfect views from all 3 windows - including the one in the bathroom. I was a little worried... More

We had first visited back in 1996, and had to show our friends this place during an Eastern Europe trip in 2009. I'd go back again at every opportunity. Frau Winkler closely supervises everything and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It was back in 1065 that a mountain fortress was constructed here to fend off the armies of Asiatic horsemen. However, at least since the time when this fortress named after the Caphensteiner family came into the possession of the ancient Styrian patrician Winkler-Hermaden family, have things become increasingly peaceful in the environs of this romantic knight’s castle.15 stylishly appointed guest rooms, including a Prince’s, Castle Court and Poet’s room, invite both young honeymooners, as well as all who appreciate the finer things. ... more   less
