Anticipation is the most beautiful joy of all, so they say. Sometimes, it saves us from the gloomier moments of daily life. When the city clamors and everything collapses around you, you long for the expanses and tranquility of the mountains. When you look out the window and the day is at its grayest, a leap of fancy to languid summer nights and a glass of wine enjoyed in a favorite city helps immensely. When a shadow reaches out over everything, we wish nothing dearer than sunshine and lightness.
The last months have been marked by waiting and patience. But now, small glimmers of hope are beginning to take hold. You can see them, feel them. Very slowly, we are allowing ourselves to experience optimistic anticipation. Cautiously, perhaps, but even so.
“It is so sad to look forward to something alone”, says Lessing. Because of that, we can but share our eager expectations with you. Beginning with our castles and mansions.
For 300 years it has stood there, Ansitz Felsenheim. Directly across, though also at a respectful distance from the imposing rocky edifice of the Zugspitze. At the end of May, the Ansitz will be opening its gates once again to those in search of a summer escape. Indeed, the nearby mountains offer perfect conditions to do precisely that. Extended hikes or refreshment in alpine lakes. Relaxing afterwards in the steam bath and sauna. Winding down the day gazing out across the surrounding peaks.
Replenish your energy reserves as you escape the gray daily routine. Enthroned high above the valley, Schloss Mittersill extends the invitation to simply leave everything behind. Through the window, you look out across the broad valley towards the mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps. To celebrate the opening of their gates, the castle is combining a junior suite, 4-course menu from their toque-awarded kitchen & a private sauna.
Ensconced high above Deutschlandsberg is the eponymous rock castle. Surrounded by dense forests, meadows and vineyards. Fluttering from an open window is a red curtain, iridescent in the midday sun. Since the 12th century, Burg Deutschlandsberg has sat enthroned above the hills of Southern Styria. The 24 rooms and suites invite you to sojourn amid a captivating mixture of baroque and modern elements.
After the gaping emptiness and challenges of recent times, perhaps you are ready to experience something new again. With Schloss Leopoldskron, you find the perfect location to create some welcome distance, enjoy the peace & quiet, but at the same time discover a city. Just a few minutes from the Salzburg historic district, a veritable jewel stands here on the banks of a small, idyllic lake. From the rooms and suites, your eyes gaze out across the water to the mountain scenery beyond. All rooms and suites as well as both townhouses have been sensitively renovated true to the original character. The uniqueness of the baroque architecture is tangible in every facet. A house rich in stories and secrets, though also with a great future.
