Awakened from its enchanted slumbers.

century adapted, ideal and exclusive infrastructure was created for various events. Nestled in an 11ha English landscape park you and your guests enjoy the highest comfort.
From loss and fall to rise and shine.
From 1862 to 1864, the present castle was built in romanizing-oriental forms, with bright decorative elements on a red-plastered ground, commissioned by the count family Erdõdy under the direction of master builder Johann Lang (1822-1900).
In the following, Rotenturm experienced its first glory days: until 1929, the castle housed the valuable collections of the art-loving Countess couple Julius and Emilie Erdődy. In 1924, a fire destroyed most of the interior decoration, including the Erdődy family archives and the secret archives of the Hungarian hero of freedom, Prince Franz II Rákóczi (1676-1735), who was kept in the tower by the Hungarian army (1704-1711).
In 1929, the collections located in Rotenturm were auctioned; For a short time the castle was taken over by the Czech violin virtuoso Jan Kubelík. In 1971, the building came into the possession of the Province of Burgenland. Since 2008 it is again in private ownership.
The Viennese property and insurance expert Prof. Heinz Schinner acquired the fairy-tale castle, exposed to decay and revitalized it in cooperation with the Federal Monuments Office. He now uses Rotenturm Castle as a residence with his family and open up the ballrooms of the ground floor for events.
A wedding like a fairytale.
When our bridal couple and their guests pass through the wrought-iron gate of the driveway, they leave everyday life behind and immerse themselves in their own personal fairytale.
For the wedding, there are two banquet halls for the civil wedding as well as the in-house chapel, for church weddings. The castle has seven festive rooms for up to 130 people. Family and friends of the bridal couple can spend the night in one of the four castle apartments and our newly wed couples spend their wedding night in the brand new bridal suite in the castle tower.
In addition, Rotenturm Castle has its own certified wedding planner who, with her team, supports the bridal couples throughout the planning period with attention to detail and a lot of know-how.
