In honor of the rose

Rose gardens in Lower Austria: Romantically lush excursions to historical parks – or a popular getaway holiday at a Renaissance castle

The queen of flowers feels wonderfully at home in Lower Austria’s rose gardens. This enchanting rose excursion can also be extended, perhaps with a night in a Renaissance castle. Plus a romantic breakfast under blossoms.

Who can resist the fascination of a rose: Its blossoms symbolize beauty and love – its thorns, strength and protection. In Lower Austria these self-assured flowers are cultivated with special care. And beckon one and all to take romantic outings.

Stroll in a castle garden
Wild rosebushes duel with delicate blossoms on the wall of the jousting yard: The magnificent garden at Rosenburg Castle is a beloved setting for marriage proposals and understandably so. Romance can also reach full bloom at the Renaissance castle at Rosenau. And the historical garden at Schallaburg has heirloom rose varieties in store for visitors. And afterwards, dinner and suites for an overnight stay at the castle.

Blossoming life cycle
Marienschlössl is a veritable paradise of roses thanks to Lady of the Castle Catherine Matuschka – and also a favorite place to escape from every-day cares with its guestrooms and breakfast. The churchyard in Kirchschlag has been transformed into a fragrant rose garden. The educational rose park presents the life cycle of the rose from bud to full bloom.
