Hofkirchen im Mühlkreis - Upper Austria - Austria
In the former hunting lodge of Marsbach Castle , enjoy fantastic panoramic views from high above the Danube and a completely private atmosphere.
Hotel with views across the Danube Valley
Landhaus Falkner stands high above the Danube, on a rocky ridge that drops steeply to the river below. For 5 generations – with the 6th already born – guests have been comfortably accommodated here at “House Falkner”. The original Haus Marsbach No. 2 had belonged to Marsbach Castle prior to 1936, originally serving as the home of hunters, but now a country hotel boasting all the comforts. In the property rolls of 1668, there is mention of the “Home of the bailiff, previously built into an overseer’s house”. The existence of Schloss Marsbach was first chronicled in 1075, since when it
has had a very colorful history. The so-called Jägerhäusl (Hunter’s Cottage) has been first leased, then owned by the Falkner family since 1924. The ancient cultural landscape between the Bohemian Forest and the Danube, known as the Mühlviertel, is still treated by many holiday-makers as a
fiercely guarded secret in Upper Austria. Pristine landscapes, cultural treasures, its proximity to Bohemia, hospitable people – filled with curiosity, you are about to embark on a journey of discovery, while enjoying a stay at Landhaus Falkner with all the comforts of a stylish, tradition-rich house
and a private atmosphere. A library with a fine collection of books, the personal hobby of Simone Falkner, a winter garden, a garden with a beautiful pool in summer, as well as the glorious scenery are certain to captivate you. Every day in Marsbach begins with an organic breakfast, which is served to you either in the dining room, the winter garden or out on the terrace overlooking the Danube.
