From house and domination to area and enjoyment
The "Castle Road" connects castles and palaces, which are much more than just dots on a map. Each of them holds within its walls a great secret – that of time. This beautiful area of southeastern Austria and Slovenia is home to one of Europe’s highest concentrations of castles and palaces. All of these noble houses are living witnesses of great epochs, which called forth verdant gardens, great cuisine, wonderful wines and artisanry of the highest order. They invite one to stay a while to enjoy it all. And hardly anyone knows the area as well as those whose common goal it is to carry these traditions into the modern age.
