Castle Hotel Leonstain

Pörtschach am Wörthersee - Carinthia - Austria

Tradition and design blend in a uniquely romantic setting here at the over 500-year-old Leonstain Castle in Pörtschach on Lake Wörthersee. The famous composer, Johannes Brahms, also found a quiet refuge here at the castle, where he actually wrote both his violin concerto and the 2nd symphony.

Castle hotel and garden villa on Lake Wörthersee

Castle hotel Schloss Leonstain is located at the entrance to Pörtschach, a tradition-rich and lively resort town on Lake Wörthersee.

Klagenfurt is the city in which Robert Musil and Ingeborg Bachmann, both famous authors, were born. No wonder, then, that literature occupies a very important position here. But also when it comes to the theatre, cabaret and music, this “Cultural City of the South” also has plenty to offer: With a theatre presenting all of the performing arts, repertory companies, almost 100 cultural associations, choirs and a considerable number of galleries, Klagenfurt boasts a very lively artistic and cultural scene.

The programme of the Klagenfurt Municipal Theatre is distinguished by its diversity and quality of the very highest order. And in the capital city of a province where such famous composers as Gustav Mahler and Johannes Brahms found their inspiration, it is no wonder that music also feels right at home.  The Klagenfurt Wörthersee Festival draws visitors with an enticing selection of hit musicals.
