The Hotel
Hotel Eggersberg
Eggersberg Castle is a typical example of a Renaissance Hofmark, the smallest jurisdictionmof the country at that time. There is no denying that the castle is an impressive sight with its 100 windows, 50 m in length and 25 m in breadth. The castle and the service buildings have a roof area of more then 2,000 m2, which is enough to make the present-day owner shiver. The Renaissance building is adorned with two stepped gables and a total of three typical corner towers that are topped with an onion dome. There has never been a forth tower, because instead the stables had been built in the castle courtyard. The house was built by the jurist Adam Jocher von Egersperg in 1604 and became the property of Dr.iur.utr. Robert F.E. Weigand in 1962.
With much effort and love he transformed the almost ruinous and empty former Hofmark into a small

Renaissance Hotel

with 13 double rooms/suites and 4 single rooms with mostly antique furniture. The room rates include a large breakfast buffet incl. coffee, tea and juice. The comfortably furnished rooms with view of the original Danube valley invite you to relax and dream.

Parforce horn
  If you want to experience something special, the team at Eggersberg will arrange a Renaissance Banquet for you in the former stables, in the evening accentuated by the crackling of fragrant beech wood in the open fireplace.
