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.
