Set deep in a densely forested nature park with commanding views of the Burgenland countryside, Lockenhaus is considered one of the last authentic knights’ castle in Austria.
For the last 25 years considerable expenditures have been made to turn the castle from near ruins into a museum—literally. No problem if you’re not a hotel guest. For a small fee you can explore the old castle kitchen, weapon chamber, knights’ hall, and prince’s room to your heart’s content
The hotel also offers apartments with kitchens outside the castle walls and down the hill in an annex, so be sure to specify that you want one of the rooms inside the castle.
The medieval tavern dining room serves hearty regional fare.
