In the heart of Styria amid alpine ranges and river valleys, Schloss Gabelhofen offers 4-star luxury in an area relatively unknown to international tourists.
You won’t find tattered carpets and family heirlooms sitting about; this hotel has undergone extensive renovation and modernization. Rooms are individually decorated and configured according to the castle’s architecture.
Schloss Gabelhofen is a lovely Renaissance castle ideal for conferences, seminars, and weekend getaways.
For the casual visitor, the schloss makes a convenient base from which to explore the area.
