The late-medieval Forchtenstein Castle welcomes you in front of a picturesque backdrop in Eastern Austria. Enjoy private or business events in the unique ambience of this famous Burgenland landmark and enchant your guests with the historical flair of the conditions. Whether a romantic dream wedding, receptions, cultural events or business events from the seminar to the press conference – here you are in the right place!

Thanks to the generous space available, the venue knows how to completely convince at events with up to 180 people. For example, take advantage of the nearly 70 m² Leopoldinenzimmer for your civil wedding, before you finally stop for the church ceremony in the castle chapel. This was built under Count Esterházy and inspired among other things by her stucco decoration and elaborate paintings. The Upper Bastion is ideal for receptions. From there you can experience the view over the Burgenland up to Lake Neusiedl. The courtyard can also be included in your activities if the weather permits.

It is especially solemn in the vault of the Bacchuskeller. After a careful restoration, the impressive rooms of the baroque vault even include modern technical equipment! The 158 m² Lutherkeller also offers an atmospheric, elegant ambience for large celebrations such as an anniversary. In the ballroom you can expect over 140 m² of picture galleries of Hungarian kings and splendid chandeliers, while in the cozy fireplace room with up to 13 people is more confident.

Look forward to the support of a reliable team and benefit in the course of business events from the offered conference package with care, modern equipment and culinary breaks. If necessary, you are welcome to bring your own caterer, but we highly recommend the offer of the Café Restaurant Grenadier at the castle under Chef Michael Strobl.
