The premises of the medieval Rothschild Castle in Waidhofen an der Ybbs are home to a not everyday inn: the Schlosswirt Waidhofen. It is the combination of many components that gives guests a tasteful stay. Andreas Plappert's upscale inn cuisine is equally pleasing to the palate and the eye. The castle was built in the 13th century on a conglomerate rock directly above the Ybbs. Culinary flights of fancy are pre-programmed. The high-quality and mostly seasonal products are processed according to all the rules of the art. The Mostviertler cream soup, the Blunzentascherl with spicy cabbage, the creamy mild sheep's cheese and the roasted Ybbs trout underline the regional claim of the house.

Cultural enjoyment at the Schlosswirt

A good meal also requires a refined ambience. Large tables, comfortable wooden benches are complemented with elegant decorative elements at Schlosswirt Waidhofen. Guests can enjoy the specialities of the house in the cosy restaurant or in the charming castle courtyard. The gentle sound of the small Ybbs can be easily heard in the background. The service staff impress with a healthy balance of restraint and activity. Competent and friendly information is provided about the extensive wine and beer assortment. And as if all that were not enough: with mystery dinners and theatre evenings as part of the Schlosshof plays, the Schlosswirt succeeds in setting cultural accents. Culture and enjoyment at the highest level - a wonderful symbiosis.
