Castle lovers will be thrilled to cross the moat and pass through the castle gates at Burg Oberranna. This is as genuine a castle as it gets.
It has stood guard on a hill overlooking the Danube Valley for nearly a thousand years.
The owners of the hotel, the Nemetz family, have done a wonderful job maintaining the historical atmosphere and architecture of the castle, while providing the comforts of the 21st century.
Valuable antiques, paintings, hunting trophies, and wrought-iron lamps are accented throughout the guest rooms and public rooms.
When the weather is cool, a crackling open fire will warm you in the old tavern. Delicious delicacies, typical of the Wachau region, are still prepared, in part, on the old wood stove in the castle kitchen.
The castle holds an ancient Romanesque chapel crypt.
