  • Daily torque Austria trip. I revisited the Castle after almost 10 years, and it always has its charm. Reset the ascent on foot, made much more touristy and smooth at all. When I was there for the first time, say that was a bit more wild. So excellent renovation! :-) Modernized and expanded the Museum in the Castle, and open areas (for me) new. Interesting peace and quiet, beautiful landscapes. Excellent cuisine, we stopped for lunch at the Castle, eaten dishes (you can't help but try their sausage!) and not at all expensive! Staff was very friendly and helpful, despite us not understood much German! I highly recommend you go and visit the Castle!!

  • Well preserved village stands on a hill located near Klagenfurt in the village of Launsdorf. After a walk of about half an hour uphill, challenging enough, we arrive at the cortiva Castle. Residential facility medieval appearance despite the period of construction, 1540-1590 about. Inside the castle there are some rooms dedicated to the recovery and eaposizione of different armor, weapons and objects to use difensivo\offensivo, also an interesting collection of Renaissance paintings (portraits mostly). Within the area there is a small refreshment cortiva where you can stop for a lunch.

  • A great castle. Is absolutely ok. The road to above already an adventure. There are 14 watch towers up to marvel at. Top a fantastic look and a great castle.

  • Great medieval and heavily fortified castle! Wonderful vista over the whole region. Interesting exhibits in the museum. The Burgschenke restaurant offers good choices at surprisingly fair prices. During our visit a local band played Austrian folk music. A "must see" if you're visiting the region. The lift is extremely ugly but makes access for elderly and handicapped people possible - so minus one star for the optics, but plus one star for not excluding anyone. ;-)
  • I've never been treated so rude and unwelcome by a person like by the woman at the reception. Arrived three minutes after last admission because of traffic jam and she would not let us in unless we buy a ticket for €22 and take the lift up to the castle because you apparently can not go up and down again till 5 pm.. Like who opens a great "attraction" for only a few hours a day and that in summer?? Apparently they have enough money and do not need history interested people at their castle. Thumbs up for a great day ruined!
  • OMG, Just gorgeous! With a day trip to walk around and enjoy the views!
  • Very much recommended trip. Amazing view from castle over austria countryside
  • The only one Austrian castle that wasn't conquered by the enemy. Amazing view when you are looking from the side on it. The lift was out of order but it turned out for the best. The weather was fine and we walked through all 14 gates. In castle there is interesting armory museum. Also there was tall friendly guide we chatted about different things.
