Awakened from an enchanted slumber.
Rotenturm Castle is located in the spa region of sunny southern Burgenland and is one of the most beautiful historic castles in Austria. Through a careful, complete renovation, an ideal and exclusive infrastructure that meets 21st-century standards was created for various events. Nestled in an 11-hectare English landscape park, you and your guests will be treated to the highest comfort.
From decline and fall to rise and shine.
Rotenturm Castle is one of the most important country castles in Austria. Stephan Count Erdödy had it built from 1862 to 1864 by the Budapest master builder Antal Weber, a student of Pietro Nobile at the Vienna Academy.
Since 2008, Rotenturm Castle has been owned by Prof. Heinz Schinner, who extensively revitalized the castle in close cooperation with the Federal Office for the Protection of Monuments until 2015. Today, the castle shines in new splendor - all prerequisites for a wonderful, extraordinary and changeable location are thus given.
The Lord of the Castle
The Viennese property and insurance expert Prof. Heinz Schinner acquired the fairy-tale castle, which had fallen into decay, and revitalized it in cooperation with the Federal Monuments Office. He now resides in Rotenturm Castle with his family and has openned up the festival halls on the ground floor to the public for events.
