The earliest personality known to have had a castle here was knight Rudolf von St. Michael in 1150. The present castle is named after knight Eckert von Thann and Count Bartholomäus von Moosheim, who owned the castle in 1284 and 1530 respectively.

The Schrempf family acquired the castle in 1984 and opened it as a hotel in 1992.

Ernest and Gerlinde Schrempf have lovingly restored this appealing and charming landmark in the northwest part of Styria, not far from the lake region of the Salzkammergut.

As soon as you approach the front door and see a large Willkommen (welcome!) painted on the archway, with flowers cascading from above, you know you’ve come to the right place.

Guest rooms are furnished in lots of natural wood and fit well with the castle architecture.

Fresh, healthy meals are served in the Schlosschanke, a 400-year-old vaulted dining room.
