  • Burg Lockenhaus is a hotel as well as a museum and we booked a room in the castle itself, so that we could explore the castle at our own pace. The room was great. It had a livingroom with couch and TV, a luxurious bedroom with a large bed and a separate bathroom with a tub The museum showed the history of the castle, as well as the Knights Templar who lived here. We also did a separate guided tour related to the Templars. Absolutely worth going to Thanks for the great time..
  • It's a superb place if you wanna relax. There are a couple of free games to play with (chess, bowling) and a big lake, if you wanna take a walk in nature.
