Castle booking - Experience Culture
Experience Culture
The Castle Road connects 37 historic castles, palaces and abbeys in Austria and Slovenia. Our mission is to make history come alive, preserve our common historic cultural heritage and make it accessible for visitors.

On this page you will find inspiring cultural experiences in six different tourist regions which may all be individually combined with one another. The thematic structure and recommended experiences serve as an optional guideline that can help you to compile your own memorable cultural journeys along the Castle Road. The unlimited possibilities enable customised travel planning which, in turn, ensures satisfied customers. We are happy to assist you in your research and availability enquiries, as well as with regional tour guides.
