Enter into the fascinating world of the Baroque era and thrill to the beauty of Prince Eugene’s country seat in Marchfeld! Explore the magnificent palace, the unique Baroque gardens and the idyllic estate farm with its world of animals and plants. Schloss Hof and its estate was the scene of brilliant events and famous far and wide already in the prince’s times. Today this tradition of opulent pleasures and entertainment is continued in the many events and festivities for the whole family, as well as in annually changing special exhibitions.

Rebuilt in 1725 into a hunting lodge and country seat for the military commander Prince Eugene of Savoy, in 1755 the ensemble was purchased by Maria Theresa, who had it remodelled into the largest rural palace and estate in the Habsburg Monarchy. Down to the present day, the complex has always been characterised by three main areas, making Schloss Hof into a Baroque synthesis of the arts.

The State Rooms on the first floor are accessed via the staircase. The tour starts in the North Wing with Prince Eugene’s former residential apartment, which was remodelled for Emperor Joseph II. The rooms in the East Wing look over the resplendent gardens and are devoted to an in-depth view of the life and career of the art lover and military commander Prince Eugene of Savoy. Finally the tour leads via the Baroque chapel and the neoclassical banqueting hall to Maria Theresa’s quarters in the South Wing.

Each room has its own unique fascination and conjures up all the joie de vivre of the eighteenth century.


The unique Baroque gardens extend on seven terraces descending gently down to the River March, inviting visitors to a leisurely stroll along luxuriously blooming flower beds, fountains and artistic stone sculptures.

One of the largest Baroque estate farms in Central Europe provides an idyllic setting for numerous theme gardens, including the herb garden, the “Nasch” –  “snack” – Garden and the Weinviertel Garten; it is also a home for many domestic breeds of animals of old Austrian tradition, now very rare. The popular Children’s and Family World focuses its activities at the weekends and in the school holidays on baking, do-it-yourself handicrafts and cultural programmes for children. Two adventure trails are designed as exciting interactive tours, taking guests, young and old, on a fun time trip, also giving them an experience of life from the perspective of a stable lad or maidservant.

TIP: Schloss Niederweiden – Prince Eugene of Savoy’s private residential jewel

Schloss Niederweiden is a genuine insider’s tip and only three kilometres away from Schloss Hof.  It possesses a very special fascination, radiating all the joie de vivre of a French chateau de plaisir and the charm of a stately villa in Upper Italy. Delicate Chinese murals adorn the walls of the banqueting hall, meanwhile, the annexed Game Kitchen welcomes with rustic Baroque cosiness and intimacy. Schloss Niederweiden will open again on 13 March 2021.

SISI - TEMPORARY EXHIBITION | 13 March - 26 October 2021, daily 10 am-6 pm

part of Schloss Hof Estate. This extraordinary woman is still surrounded by mystery, and the exhibition will showcase objects that have never previously been displayed in public as well as the results of latest research.

Sisi´s Son Rudolf: 

The exhibition at Schloss Hof Estate affords an insight into the life of Crown Prince Rudolf, Empress Elisabeth’s only son. Focusing on his private life, it will examine the formative experiences of his childhood and his political attitudes as well as his intense interest in the natural sciences.
