These are the special places that will immerse you in bygone times. Listen as the castle walls whisper their stories to you, and let the special fascination of these places in Schloss Mittersill affect you.
The Beautiful Eras Past
The foyer on the first floor is part of the "original" Schloss Mittersill. It mainly impresses with its furniture from the beginning of the 19th century. The niches have a stunning view of the surrounding mountains, which will invite you to linger and dream. The first floor is an ideal location for pictures and serves as an incomparable backdrop for photo shootings, especially for weddings and special celebrations.
The foyer leads to the castle suites, such as the bridal suite of Queen Juliana. The Dutch Queen spent her honeymoon at Schloss Mittersill in February 1937 with her new husband, Prince Bernhard. You also have access to the tower suite (“Turmsuite”), where you will feel like in a fairytale. It is located in our castle tower and has direct access to the panoramic terrace.
Walk along the Battlements & Fortified Tower
Fortification from the 15th century.
The fortified tower and bastion are part of the west wing of the castle and date back to the 15th century. They were used to guard the castle and you can still see one or two holes that were shot into the walls.
The walk along the battlements is located directly above the chapel and offers a wonderful view of the province Pinzgau in the Salzburg region and the surrounding mountains of the Hohe Tauern. Come away from the hustle and bustle, enjoy the silence and linger for a moment. In the evening we like to use these historical features to drink an aperitif after one of our castle tours, because who doesn’t enjoy ending an evening with a delightful drink, a contemplative atmosphere, and the breathtaking view of mountain ranges?
Our “Gewölbekeller” is an ideal place to enjoy social evenings with a special glass of wine. Linger for a little while longer, you are guaranteed to like the surroundings. It has historic arches, an open fireplace, a large table with a heavy plate - all conducive to an inviting atmosphere that produces hearty laughter and good conversations. Celebrate your special moments, such as anniversaries, marriage proposals, or other happy events in our arch cellar!
Our arch cellar provides a unique setting for family or smaller corporate parties, as well as other special occasions. We regularly organize culinary entertainment programmes, such as gourmet events or wine tastings, in our “Gewölbekeller”.
It is also a special place to host a wine tasting with one of our sommeliers as a seminar highlight at hotel Schloss Mittersill.
Built in 1533
After the massive damage done to the castle during the peasant wars in Pinzgau in 1525/26, the chapel was built in the southwest tower of the Schloss Mittersill, located in the region of Salzburg. The castle’s chapel is the oldest chapel building in Mittersill and was built in 1533 after the castle was renovated. The year 1533 and coat of arms of the archbishop of Salzburg and Cardinal Matthäus Lang can be seen on the chapel ceiling, above the door. The chapel room is stylistically late Gothic, which you can see in the pointed arch windows made with a fine cement casting, and the Gothic wooden altar.
It was lovingly restored, and is now an ideal location for church or non-traditional wedding ceremonies for up to 70 people.
Mystical and Historical
The 15th century saw many witch trials happening throughout Austria and Europe. Unfortunately, Schloss Mittersill was no exception. Unpopular and disgraced women were accused of causing natural disasters by means of witchcraft. The accused were placed in the castle’s “Hexenkeller” until their trial. They would be put in a cage attached to the ceiling, so they had no way of touching the ground, from which they supposedly sourced their magical powers. People believed that witches’ contact with the ground resulted in disasters such as bad weather and epidemics. Other dungeons, such as the “Messerturm”, were walled up in the 20th century.
Glashaus & Panoramic Terrace
A 360° Mountain & Valley Panoramic View
The Glashaus is like a separated winter garden, towering high above Mittersill and located above the castle’s gates and is directly connected to the panoramic terrace. As such, it offers an impressive panoramic 360° view of the mountains of the Hohe Tauern and Kitzbühel Alps.
The Glashaus is connected to our restaurant, enabling you to enjoy the first rays of sunshine in the morning on our terrace. Otherwise, feel free to admire the breathtaking sunset behind the mountains during dinner.
The Glashaus is the perfect location for smaller parties up to 14 people. Due to its unique location, it can only be used weather permitting.
A Peaceful and Rejuvenating Place
The castle gardens of our four-star superior castle hotel are a place of tranquility and strength. The silence, greenery, flowers, and the beautiful view of the surrounding mountains of the Hohe Tauern and Kitzbühel Alps invite you to do yoga in the morning, or simply enjoy nature. If you are planning a picnic in the countryside for two, it is also the perfect place
Unique and Special
Numerous high-quality wines from all over the world and fine rarities await your tasting in the historic wine cellar from the 15th century. Our restaurant manager, Miso Bojanovic, greatly enjoys giving our guests a tour of the historic cellar rooms or, for small groups, organising wine tastings in the venerable vault.
Our terrace is a place for peaceful fascination. It is where you will be able to see the view of the Hohe Tauern mountains and the Kitzbühel Alps, as well as over the Salzach valley, and it doesn’t seem to end. It is impressive - over and over again. Visit our sun terrace on the second floor - it is definitely worth it and should not be missed!
Our suggestion: silently enjoy the stunning sunset with a glass of wine!
