From manor and lordship to region and relaxation
The "Castle Road" connects castles and palaces, which are much more than just dots on a map. Each of them holds within its walls a great secret – that of time. This beautiful area of southeastern Austria and Slovenia is home to one of Europe’s highest concentrations of castles and palaces. All of these noble houses are living witnesses to great epochs in the past, which called forth verdant gardens, great cuisine, wonderful wines and artisanry of the highest order. They invite one to stay awhile to enjoy it all. And hardly anyone knows the region where these great houses are located better than those who have been charged with preserving them and in so doing, carrying their traditions into the modern age.
