Austrian Castle History
The castle is over 1000 years old and was first documented in 979 when Otto II. gave the land between the two Erlauf rivers to Bishop Wolfgang von Regensburg. Originally the castle was built with 4 towers and a moat. Today’s architecture stems mainly from the 16th century and shows a trapezoid shape, a large courtyard with arcades, a centre tower and a belfry spire. Countess Hilda Auersperg Lee and her daughter Georgina Auersperg Newall currently run the castle and estate, they are constantly restoring it yet manage to maintain the original charm of this historic and beautiful building.
The rooms in the castle are divided into double and single rooms, as well as larger suites. Each room is beautifully furnished with antiques, family memorabilia, original paintings and armour from bygone centuries. The elegant public rooms, the large salon and the red salons are much as they were when this was a private house; large and luxuriously comfortable. There is also a bar, dining room, garden terraces and cellars around the courtyard.
The stunning, historical Schloss Ernegg’s golf courses are located just a short stroll from the castle. Both the 18 and 9 hole courses, built in 1973, are renowned for their friendly and relaxed atmosphere warmly welcoming local and visiting golfers on a membership or pay and play basis.
