Schloss Korb is one of those special castle hotels that have remained in the same family for generations. Since 1918, the Dellago family have been welcoming visitors to their castle.
Despite being just a few kilometers from the city, the castle sits in a quiet park surrounded by vineyard-covered hillsides.
The castle’s decor has a distinct Tyrolean flair, with handcrafted art objects, and a profusion of plants and flower arrangements throughout.
Many guest rooms are richly paneled and have views of the countryside. The most interesting rooms are in the tower, which feature Romanesque arched windows.
An added bonus for castle lovers is the short walk to the ruins of Schloss Boymont, where you can enjoy a picnic and the fine scenery.
The castle produces its own wine (be sure to visit the “wine bunker”).
