Fantastic view

Fantastic view about Kärnten, about Villach, the lakes, the mountains. In nice weather is possible to see a part of Italy and Slowenia as well.

This place has a substantial history of Villach and Austria. From the Romans to French to Austrians. The views are spectacular esp from the towers. Nice gift shop and very nice place to spend a good 3 hours

The ruins look very impressive from afar, but when you are up there all there is is a restaurant and a bird show, you can't actually explore the sights. The view from up there is obviously spectacular. Good thing is you only pay €3,50 to get up there by car, no other charges except if you want to see the... More

Castle Lanskron is reachable by toll road. Expect a lot of people especially in high season and weekend. The restaurant is only open in the evening or special occasions. Do not miss the bird show as its one of a king. A large Oehoe of Bald eagle flies straight over your head.

We had dinner with 50 business colleagues. The patio drinks at sunset memorable. Dinner with lots of gags and antics was tolerable. Food better than expected for this type of venue.

Nice old castle located on the top of a mountain near Villach where there is a panoramic restaurant with both inside and outside tables. Food and prices in line with market. At 11 AM on sunday there's an outside birds of prey show with eagles, owls and other rare birds that you can also admire in the stable exposition. To... More

We saw, amongst others, a sacker falcon, bald eagle, owl and golden eagle in action. We were all, even our one and a half year old daughter, completely fascinated. The birds seem to have the freedom to roam about and the show felt nothing like artificial or intimidating for the birds (like a circus show). And the location on this... More

This castle is easy to get to and offers all round views of the surrounding area. They have a show about the endangered birds they care for - check for times. Castle dates from the 1500's. It's a good visit for an hour or two.

Beautiful castle sorry I couldn't see it from inside because it's closed till may! You can drive all the way to the top, but it's a nice way for walking up hill
