Our 16 new cottages are in walking distance to the castle and the concert venues.
Book a room in one of our cottages or an entire cottage with four bedrooms. The cottages are situated in the historic gardens of the castle close to the concert venues.
The cottages have four bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, and a living room with kitchen.
Individual rooms can be booked at the Midsummer Night's Gala (22nd and 23rd June) and during the Grafenegg Festival (17th August to 9th September).
Entire cottages can be booked throughout the year.
Our innovative entry system allows you to access you cottage or room anytime, without key or card, using a number code which will be sent to you prior to your arrival.
The new gardens of the cottages were designed by the renowned British landscape designer Todd Longstaff Gowan. Over 350 new trees and shrubs have been planted.
53m3 of timber were used to build each house, thus storing approximately 850 tonnes of CO2 with the 16 cottages. The source of energy for the cottages is our own hydropower station making the houses virtually emission-free.
Schloss Grafenegg is one of the most important examples of a 19th century country estate in Austria.
75 acres of historic gardens invite you to romantic walks or to enjoy a relaxed pique nique.
Visiting orchestras at the 2018 Grafenegg Festival include the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Dresden, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and many more.
