Renaissancehotel Raffelsberger Hof
Weissenkirchen - Lower Austria - Austria
Located amid vineyards, apricot trees and almost right on the Danube itself, an old shipping master's house was converted into one of the most beautiful hotels in the entire Wachau region.
The Raffelsberger Hof
… an architectural and cultural gem from the late renaissance. It was in this Époque – in 1574, to be precise – that this venerable shipping master’s house was built, subsequently becoming home to an enchanting hotel garni which radiates that unaffected charm so typical of the Wachau. If you have an eye for detail, you will adore the artistically forged door locks and the wrought-iron lamp holders, as you will the dignified and heavy ceiling work. An ideally situated base for wine and art tours, as well as for cycling expeditions through the Wachau. A 4 star hotel with all the modern comforts, where you can relax in an historic setting and – wonderfully looked after by the owners, the Anton family – make yourself right at home, feeling as if you are vacationing amongst friends.
Experience the Wachau Valley
And the surrounding area awaits with no shortage of opportunities for memorable experiences. Weissenkirchen, with its historic heart and the old Boatmen’s Church, is rightfully regarded as one of the pearls of the Wachau Valley, while also being home to some of the most priceless vineyards in the Wachau wine country. It is from these that those fine drops of wine come, which are served beneath the renaissance vaults of the Raffelsberger hotel’s wine lounge. This relaxing setting offers both outstanding wines, as well as sofa seating which virtually beckons you to allow your mind and soul to roam free. Here you will discover Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd wines. And, when you return to your room in high spirits, you can also enjoy views of the hotel’s secluded garden with its lavenders, hydrangeas, a fountain and natural pool – the perfect finishing touch to this glorious idyll of the Wachau!
