Welcome to Castle Plankenstein - enjoy your time-out at this historic place in the middle of the nature region Textingtal.

With a unique view over Textingtal, the castle offers a variety of possibilities to immerse yourself in the moment: hikes & walks in the region, breathtaking sunrises & sunsets, an idyllic evening in the castle tavern or the arcade courtyard or by exploring the numerous angled rooms, stairs and niches of the castle.

The space
Historic rooms await you, which have retained their original flair with attention to detail and at the same time meet contemporary comfort.

This accommodation is one of the most exclusive in our castle - stay in your own tower and be enchanted by the unique flair. The tower, called Porthos, is on the left in front of the castle and gives you even more privacy. There is a living room on the ground floor with elegant furnishings for relaxing. On the floor above is the bedroom with beautiful solid wood furniture. The all-round view of the Textingtal is unique, as is the shower, from which you can unobtrusively enjoy the view of the outdoors. The Porthos captivates with its tasteful historical and at the same time modern facilities and invites for a special time for two.

Arrive and enjoy - we look forward to seeing you!

HISTORY:
The castle was first mentioned in documents in 1186 and looks back on an eventful history. It was built by "those at Plancinstain" of a powerful noble family. However, it owes its name to the material from which it was built: white limestone, blanc, as was said at the time. From 1800 onwards, however, the castle fell into disrepair and was only restored to its basic walls in the 1970s.

The castle has been enjoying a new splendor since 2010: it has been brought back to life with great attention to detail! Historic castle components, original materials meet stylish, contemporary comfort and create a unique feel-good atmosphere.

Guest access
Each guest has a room with its own bathroom. There are currently 5 rooms listed on Airbnb with different equipment and prices. We are sure there is a perfect room for you to stay.

The rest of the area of ​​the castle is shared: the castle tavern where breakfast is served and where lunch and dinner are available, the arcade courtyard, the castle shop, a climbing park and the entire outdoor area with forest, viewing platform and lots of pure nature.

Other things to note
Various events take place at Plankenstein Castle throughout the year. If you are interested, just send us a message - we will be happy to inform you about further details.

Die Burg Plankenstein habe ich während dem Besuch eines Festes vor Ort sofort ins Herz geschlossen. Als die Burg kurz danach zum Verkauf stand, habe ich mir einen Kindheitstraum erfüllt und sie erworben. Seit 2010 mache ich es mir zur Aufgabe die Burg mit historischen und ursprünglichen Materialien neu aufleben zu lassen. Um diesen einzigartigen Kraftplatz mit anderen Menschen zu teilen, gibt es die Möglichkeit vor Ort zu übernachten, Feste zu feiern oder an verschiedensten Veranstaltungen (Mittelalterfest, Ostermarkt, usw) teilzunehmen. Da ich beruflich hauptsächlich in Wien tätig bin, begrüßt und kümmert sich mein hervorragendes Team vor Ort um Sie. Herzlich Willkommen auf Burg Plankenstein- Ein einzigartiger Ort für eine gute Auszeit!
