A meeting place for culture lovers

Murtal Culture

Did you know that this hotel was originally designed as a moated castle? The moat you will cross on the bridge provides a reminder of this idea to this day even though it was quickly discarded because the water would seep away into the ground too quickly. Today it is a green part of the wonderful garden in which you can enjoy the summer months.

Gaze at the four proud outer towers that – with their lockouts – were supposed to ensure the castle’s safety. Today, they house unique maisonette suites.

Close your eyes when you’re in the spacious lobby with its impressive arcades and glass roof: Can you hear the clap of the horses’ hooves? Here, where cosy sitting areas and plants are found today, is where the horses used to be watered after hard rides or carriage trips.

Take some time during your stay. At this place architecture has succeeded in making tradition and culture modern and comfortable at the same time. Our employees will gladly show you our different rooms that all have a long history. Our so-called Gabelhofen Saal used to be a courtroom in which the lords would judge their subjects for their crimes. Pfanngauer Saal, a room that radiates a special kind of cosiness or the vaulted restaurant and wine cellar far below the surface also have a rich cultural history.

The large, modern glass annexe provides a harmonic counterpart to the historic part of the castle. This is where contemporary culture happens. At regular intervals it houses exhibitions by various artists.
