Castle of Rothschild

Surprisingly modern – a room of possibilities

Ivy is climbing up the old stone walls. The wild wine climbs in the courtyard. The water of the Ybbs flows unimpressed past the imposing castle.
Bishops once resided here, later Baron Rothschild lived behind the thick stones; today the historical walls are a place of meeting.

Culture in modern splendour

The glass cube on the castle tower is a visible testimony to the courage of star architect Hans Hollein to combine old with new. Thus he also created a concert hall inside the castle.. In the crystal hall world stars as well as pupils of the music school can be heard. High culture and folk culture are equally suitably framed and attract numerous visitors.

Weddings and seminars with that certain something

If no music sounds through the rooms, the castle is also a real insider tip for events of all kinds: not only weddings in the sparkling crystal hall, on the terrace made of glass or in the old forge at the rippling Schwarzbach find an individual setting here. The Castle of Rothschild also has room for ideas and is often used for company events and seminars. In the midst of the old walls, thought processes are stimulated and visions spun.

Capture history, enjoy the green, discover the glow of lights

Although the Castle of Rothschild is located on the outskirts of the city centre, it is the central point of contact: In addition to the tourist office, which informs visitors about the region, it houses the 5-Elements-Museum. Here the history of the city becomes clear and the toysworld shows the fantasy and stories of children of bygone days.

The castle park, which is also a “nature in the garden"-show garden, attracts children to the playground and picnics on the meadow in summer. In winter there is often a snowman's parade, lined up like castle guards. And as if that wasn't already enough for these old walls, every year the whole castle shines for the “Flammende Lichterweihnacht”, with numerous exhibitors showing their handicrafts.
