NEW PARTNER: Schloss Eckartsau

Extraordinary rooms for celebrations of all kinds

Once upon a time, the castle located halfway between Vienna and Bratislava was a majestic idyll, a baroque hunting estate that was to be the last home of the last Austrian imperial family. Today it is a natural and cultural attraction in the heart of the Dona-Auen National Park.

The atmosphere of the baroque hunting lodge, at the same time opulent and intimate, cast a spell over many a Habsburg. Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne, loved to go hunting in the Danube wetlands while staying here. And for the last Austrian Emperor Karl I, Schloss Eckartsau served as the last residence in the country for him and his family after his abdication in November of 1918. Today, the estate is part of the Donau-Auen National Park and, in addition to being a popular destination for excursions, it is also a magnificent location for events of all kinds.

The ideal setting for your event

Just outside Vienna's city gates and surrounded by the lush greenery of the wetlands, you’ll find the perfect setting for your corporate event, small private party, or large public celebration. Its classy ambience adds a sparkle of exclusivity to any seminar, presentation, or talk. And we can accommodate a wide variety of venue requirements: The five rooms of the Beletage will brilliantly showcase your event, while the wood-panelled library exudes an air of country elegance, while a more refined ambience prevails in the light-filled Festhalle, adorned with rich ornamental stucco. In contrast, the inner courtyard radiates an almost Mediterranean aura. The magnificent 27-hectare castle park encloses the grounds in an idyllic landscape. Here, you can reflect on what you have heard and learnt in the course of a leisurely stroll.
