Bernstein Castle is a small family owned hotel with nine lovingly restored guestrooms - only a one hour drive away from Vienna. Parts of the castle can be dated back to the 11th century. Each generation left some changes in building´s structure so today you can see a mixture of different architectural styles. The Almásy family bought the castle in the year 1892, which is why it became the birthplace of László Almásy, who´s adventures were turned into the movie „The English Patient“.

Today the castle is a safe haven for everybody who looks for peace and quiet, with an outstanding view over Styria and Lower Austria and generous rooms.

Our rooms

There are nine lovingly renovated guest rooms that you can choose from - each with it´s own unique character. They are equipped with original furniture , while the bathrooms were changed to suit modern tastes. There are no TVs or telephones in the rooms, but you will be surrounded by beautiful nature, clean air and the peace and quiet of the countryside.

On clear days you can see the Riegersburg castle in Styria and even further to the Carinthian alps approx. 150 km away.

Acitivies & Trips

The castle is located between lush forests and peaceful countryside, so we suggest to spend part of your holiday touring the area. If it is raining you could light a fire in the fireplace and relax with a book, coffee & cake or a glass of our Almásy wine.
