Hotel Overview


25 minutes east of Salzburg’s city centre.

Rooms at Schloss Fuschl

The 110 hotel rooms (found in the main building or in the lake cottages) offer unparalleled views, remarkable antiques, and priceless Old Masters from the Schloss Fuschl Collection. Combining a large helping of glamour with lashings of Austrian country house design, the rooms reflect the style of the Salzkammergut region, with ornate stucco mirrors, pelmetted windows, and large fireplaces. The real gem of the castle is the Sissi Suite, which decorated with antique furniture and offering views of the emerald green lake, has long been a place of pilgrimage after it was featured in the 1955 Austrian film, Sissi.

Food and facilities

With freshly caught fish from the on-site castle fishery and a choice of Austrian wines from the castle’s wine cellar, your meals at the hotel’s restaurant will be a culinary highlight.

Activities at Schloss Fuschl

A paradise spread over 1,100sq m, the Schloss Fuschl SPA provides an oasis for those seeking rejuvenation and revitalization. Though the hotel has a plastic surgeon on-call for wrinkle treatments, liposuction and Botox therapy, it also offers other treatments such as relaxing facials, therapeutic massages and one-on-one personal strength training. For golfers, why not play across the 9-hole course next to the hotel or go further afield in Salzkammergut, where you will find eleven 18-hole courses just waiting for that hole-in-one.
