Our Castle is currently closed
The new season starts on April 1st, 2022

Armory, the weapons collection and the interesting collection of pictures from the Renaissance period bear witness to the history of this unique fortification. In addition to the possibility of climbing through the historically interesting 14 castle gates, you can also reach the castle with the Fürst-Max-Bahn. An extensive cultural program with concerts, picture exhibitions and festivals invites the visitor to discover the castle in all its diversity. In the castle restaurant, visitors are spoiled with local Carinthian cuisine. In addition to the interesting museum and the culinary offer, you can also immerse yourself in the world of medieval handicrafts at the castle.

Dear guests of Hochosterwitz Castle! The history of Hochosterwitz Castle is very extensive. For this reason, you should allow at least 1.5 hours to enjoy the castle. Please note that the castle gates are closed on time. Access to the castle is possible up to 1.5 hours before the end. We wish you a nice day at Hochosterwitz Castle.
