Description

High above the Kamptal Valley, and visible from miles around, the Rosenburg Renaissance Castle is enthroned on a mighty rock. The impressive site feels like a retreat, and the extraordinary atmosphere never fails to astound visitors.

Visiting a whole new world 

Visitors feel the wow factor as soon as they enter the grounds of the castle. A weir, Gothic architecture and additions from the Renaissance era merge into a wonderful museum idyll. A tour leads through the stately living quarters, which are stylishly decorated with antique furniture. Highlights of the tour include the armoury, the state halls, the library and the breathtaking views of the Kamptal Valley. In this perfect setting, there are medieval festivals with staged jousts on horseback, and Easter and Christmas markets. Visitors can book to attend a medieval knights’ dinner; and on warm evenings every summer, the Sommernachtskomödie theatre company performs in a tent in front of the castle. For anyone who wants even more action, there is an attractive fun park with climbing walls for visitors of all ages opposite the castle.

Romanticism as far as the eye can see

Romanticism is the main focus of the castle gardens – there are four separate sections, with four different themes, to visit. Love really is like a red, red rose here. A rose garden was opened in March 2012. It is dedicated to the rose cultivation of the legendary British master cultivator David Austin, and was designed based on his concept. A garden like this is unique in Austria.

Eye to eye with the King of the Skies

Falcons, eagle owls, kites, vultures and eagles fly from the hands of the falconers, and circle far above the heads of the audience. Exclusive bird of prey displays provide an interesting insight into the historic art of falconry, various breeding programmes with which to preserve biodiversity, and fascinating information on the natural behaviour and habitats of birds of prey. The falconry museum features amazing facts about the history of falconry, as well as clothing/equipment from yesteryear and stuffed birds. In 2012, falconry was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List – but that is not the only reason why it is well worth seeing.
