|Schloss Prielau was purchased in 1983 by Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, youngest son of Dr. h.c. Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche and grandson of the founder of the Porsche automobile plants in Zuffenhausen. Within three years of restauration, the castle was lovingly renovated by Dr. Wolfgang Porsche. In May 1987, Castle Prielau opened its doors for the first time for hotel guests - and not only for those with their own Porsche.
Surrounded by large grounds with ancient trees, this castle feels as if it belongs to a medieval fairy tale. A private beach at the lake, just 200 m away from the castle, is provided for hotel guests. Wellness with sauna, steambath, caldarium, massage and cosmetics was recently added. Two restaurants will appeal to the palate of the guests: the castle’s own restaurant for Austrian specialities and home-baked cakes during the day time. In the evening the high art of dining is celebrated in the gourmet restaurant “MAYER’s”. Conferred with a Michelin star and to be nominated to be one of Austria’s top ten restaurant. Andreas Mayer, chef de cuisine at the MAYER’s, has cooked his way into hearts of guests in a very short period of time.
Schloss Prielau has 2 suites and 7 double rooms as well as an apartment in the ‘Fischerhaus’. The rooms are furnished in the tradition of Austrian rural style, combined with the comfort and luxury of an international four-star hotel.
The Wellness-area in the ‘bathhouse’ of the castle offers a sauna, steam bath and massages. Moreover, the private beach provides swimming possibilities, a lakeside house and cosy loungers.
The skiing resorts of the Europe-sports region are all within a few minutes reach.
For more information on the style and traditions of our house we would like to invite you to join us on a virtual journey through Schloss Prielau. Enjoy!
