Castle guide tour

The castle which was constructed in the 12th/13th century was a strategic point for the north-south toll road. After going through different private owners it ended up in the possession of the municipality of Burgenland and nowaday acts as a museum and conference center.

A nice guided tour of the castle, duration approx. 1.5h, will be provided by locals, who will show you the different aspects and history of the castle and also explain about the peace-keeping mission which evolved out of its history.

Places of interest:

  • Castle tower with panorama view
  • Arena/Trench
  • Peace-keeping exhibition
  • Chapel
  • Courtyard

The cost of the guided tour is 8,5 € and will be processed within the registration.


Being in a medieval castle, archery could not be missing. Whether you are an expert or never tried before: A tour in the nearby 3D parcour in the forest (“Bogenschießen in da Pampa“) will be organized, where you can feel like Robin Hood. It costs  20,- EUR / person, to be paid on-site.

Maximum number of participants will be restricted to 15 people. Registration will be done the first day of the conference on the registration desk as first-arrived/first-served. Depending on the weather conditions bring appropriate shoes/clothing. It will be cancelled if there is a thunderstorm.
