A castle and hotel with history
Established over four centuries, ahead of its time today
Schloss THALHEIM near Kapelln is located in Lower Austria near the Danube. In that part of the Mostviertel region, the landscape spreads out into vast hills. The castle originates in the 17th century, the foundation stone for the so-called “Altschloss” with three floors and the adjoining wing was probably even laid around 1600.
As the name Schloss Thalheim, or formerly Thallhamb, already implies, the historical ensemble of buildings is situated at the base of a gently sloping hill and therefore in a flat valley (T(h)al). With the opening of its doors as the Schloss Thalheim luxury hotel, this gem that has been lovingly brought back to life. As a result, today you and all our guests can be a part of the continuation of its long and in parts not completely reconstructible history.
Formerly an idyllic castle, now a gem of a hotel near Vienna
The Schloss Thalheim hotel’s vast U-shaped designed grounds consist of a group of buildings from different eras in history. The “Altschloss” and its domestic wing were extended several times. One historical extension was built on in the 18th century, the last important one at the end of the 19th century when an additional residential wing was added.
Guests today, and perhaps you too soon, can enjoy the entire ensemble with its high hipped roofs, fireplaces and an old Khevenhüller emblem over the door – and lots more. As following the completed restoration, the former Schloss THALHEIM riding hall, for example, is also accessible as a spacious dance hall and event room. The “Am Schlossgarten” restaurant is accommodated in the stables and tea ceremonies are hosted in the free-standing tea house in the garden.
Splendid gardens and a Baroque chapel designed by J. Prandtauer
Special attention was paid to returning the Thalheim gardens to full bloom with the continuation of the castle's history. A Baroque garden, rose garden and numerous other gardens surround the buildings. Incorporating the original garden architecture from the 17th century, the hill surrounding the manor house at the back now falls away in terraces again. You can enjoy the harmonious panorama of the park when dining in the "Am Schlossgarten" restaurant or enjoying your breakfast on the sunny terrace.
One special highlight is the Schloss Thalheim chapel designed in High Baroque style by the famous architect of Melk Abbey, Jakob Prandtauer. Celebrating a wedding there, not far from Vienna and then perhaps stepping out into the gardens with open-air stage is the ultimate dream. Jakob Prandtauer himself also found love at Schloss Thalheim back then. He married the former owner's court lady on 21 July 1692.
