Restaurant & Café

Schlossgarten Restaurant

A modern restaurant is nestled against the historical castle, situated above the Sissi Terrace. The large panoramic windows offer magnificent views of the paths that wind down to the Water Lily Pond. Delicious local and Mediterranean specialties, made from predominantly local ingredients, are served on the cozy roof terrace that affords panoramic views. Schlossgarten Restaurant has three different menus that vary according to the season. The cakes and pastries from Trauttmansdorff’s own bakery are a specialty. Wine lovers will also be in bliss here, since the restaurant offers a wide selection of quality wines from Laimburg Province Winery. The restaurant seats 140 inside and 200 on the terrace. Groups may request specially created three-course menus. For more information, please see
