A castle like in a fairy tale
Situated on the lake. Built on rock.
September 4, 2020
Airy, harmonious, architecturally unique, Hotel Schloss Seefels nestles on the shores of Lake Wörthersee. Especially in the golden autumn months, the Relais & Châteaux hotel shows itself from its most beautiful side. The exclusive retreat with a fantastic lake view combines tranquillity and pleasure for all the senses.
Seelust in autumn
The view is clear. The air is mild. The colourful landscape around the 5-star Hotel Schloss Seefels is stunningly beautiful. In autumn you will not only enjoy the heavenly tranquillity in an exclusive location on Lake Wörthersee, but also the promising upscale gastronomy in the three Seefels restaurants.
A jewel of the Wörthersee architecture
The polygonal Seefels Tower, a jewel of Wörthersee architecture, conceals the unique Udo Jürgens Suite behind its walls. Those who treat themselves to this luxurious suite enjoy the feeling of being a little closer to heaven. Because the jewel shines with manufactured jewels from the Treca mattress from Paris to individual pieces of furniture from the Viennese furnishing workshop Kroupa to the wallpaper in unique metal optics with matt and shiny effects in gold and silver from "Wohnen mit Stil". The absolute novelty over two floors with Master Bedroom, lake view, castle breakfast, gourmet evening menu and the Seefels pampering guarantee can be booked from € 518 per room and night.
Relax in style
When the days get shorter again, you can daydream carefree in the Felsen und See Spa. The oasis of tranquillity, awarded 3 lilies by the Relax Guide, rises as if from a Beletage and fascinates with a never-ending panorama. A delicate haze lies over the surface of the water, in the distance the softly drawn peaks of the Karawanken, in between the reddish-yellow foliage of the trees, which make the autumn season on Lake Wörthersee seem particularly magical.
Natural luxury all year round
Elsewhere the bathing season is coming to an end, not at Lake Wörthersee, you are still swimming in summer water temperatures. The absolute highlight at the Seefels Spa, the
unique 15-meter long, 8.5 meters wide and 28 degrees warm sea bath. A sunset swim is highly recommended, when the sun reflects in the water and the scenery glows in warm tones.
Upscale gastronomy in the three Seefels restaurants
Excellent restaurants are as plentiful as fantastic locations, impressive architecture and atmospheric ambience. Places that combine everything are rare: They make enjoyment a special experience.
The renowned gourmet restaurant La Terrasse has been awarded 2 Gault&Millau toques and 3 Falstaff forks almost every year in a row since 2001. This speaks for quality and continuity. Chef Richard Hessl's style is characterised by regional and seasonal cuisine, which he refines with a touch of Asian passion. The eponymous "La Terrasse" - is probably by far the most beautiful lake terrace in Austria.
The lakeside restaurant Porto Bello, the casual Mediterranean-style bistro right on the water, spoils gourmets with summery light cuisine. The Orangerie, the main restaurant of the Relais & Châteaux hotel, is a culinary meeting place at any time of day. From the opulent à la carte castle breakfast to the business lunch and the evening dinner with daily changing menus of regional and international dishes.
The Seefels goes into season extension until 06.01.2021 and looks forward to an enjoyable autumn and atmospheric Advent on Lake Wörthersee.
