Travel back to the Middle Ages.
A real knight's castle
The imposing Lockenhaus Castle is still the only castle in Austria with the image of a real knight's castle. During a visit to the castle, you can explore the exhibitions and historical rooms (knights' hall, torture chamber, cult room, etc.) or learn by guide the history of the castle and all of its former inhabitants: from the templar knight's and the scary blood Countess on to the bats.
The historic atmosphere, a tastefully furnished castle hotel, informative and eventful guides, numerous cultural events and the castle tavern with its gorgeous culinary make Lockenhaus Castle to a unique excursion, event, seminar, and holiday location in the heart of the sunny Burgenland.
The castle was built around the year 1200 above the valley of the Guens and was named Leuca. From the year 1270 it belonged to the Counts of Güssing and between the 14th
centuries it often changed hands. The couple Margaret and Paul Anton Keller acquired the castle in ruinous condition in 1968. They sold their entire property and invested all in the preservation of Lockenhaus Castle, a unique European cultural monument. Since 1980, a board of trustees of the "Prof. Paul Anton Keller-Foundation" manages the imposing knight's castle.
