Castle hotel in St. Lorenzen amid the “Green Valley” of South Tyrol
Standing on a hill above the confluence of the Rienz and Gader rivers, the 4 Star Superior Castle Hotel Sonnenburg is one step closer to heaven itself. And that’s something you can clearly feel!
It is the better part of one thousand years since Volkhold – the heir of “Suanapurc” – lost interest in earthly splendor, turned his castle into a convent in 1039, and from that point on lived as a hermit. The convent he had founded, well appointed with rich estates and an array of political and judicial rights, developed into a highly regarded abbey for women of nobility.
Comfort and Tradition at castle hotel Sonnenburg
The former abbey is now home to a romantic castle hotel with a charm that is all its own: Cautiously integrated into the venerable castle walls and lovingly restored, comfort and tradition unite to create an incomparable atmosphere.
Actually, the hill upon which the Sonnenburg stands boasts so many enchanted nooks and crannies, you would probably never wish to leave it. But rustic country inns and alpine huts, art-historical attractions, along with magical villages and small towns, invite you to stop in for refreshments and enjoy fascinating tours.
The Pfisterhaus – an exclusive holiday residence
A recent addition to the Sonnenburg is our spacious and exclusive holiday residence, the historical Pfisterhaus. With abundant love for detail, the convent’s former bakery underwent extensive restoration and now offers its guests an idyllic private setting combined with all the amenities of a 4-star superior hotel. For further information, we invite you to visit www.pfisterhaus.com.
