Schloss Albeck is a place of serene beauty, where cultural and culinary events have a wonderful setting in this baroque gem, surely one of the most famous castles in Austria.
1,000 years ago, the site was donated to the Gurk Abbey by St Hemma, the patron saint of Carinthia and founder of the Gurk Cathedral. Nowadays, Albeck is Austria’s biggest privately owned cultural centre, and has found a new lease of life offering a fabulous environment for people who want to combine their cultural with their culinary interests.
Albeck Castle is a place of encounter, welcoming all who appreciate the aura of the historic building, the calm of the surrounding nature, the open-mindedness and family atmosphere of the events. Visitors sense the power radiated by the place and find quietness and relaxation, as a feeling of homecoming is evoked.
