Schloss Kogl was built by the Khevenhüller family in 1750. In 1872, the current owners, the Mayr-Melnhof family took ownership of Schloss Kogl and very recently the family have lovingly restored the castle retaining all the original features and charm but bringing it up to date with modern facilities and comforts. The castle has magnificent frescos throughout that have been restored and it is beautifully furnished in the Austrian fin-du-siècle style. This grand Austrian castle is set in amongst 75 acres of private park which includes a clay tennis court, a swimming pool and an historic outdoor bowling alley all of which contribute to the rural tranquillity of its surroundings and the peace and serenity that is experienced here.
Schloss Kogl sleeps 17 guests in 8 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom. Each room is completely individual in style and character but they all offer luxury and authentic splendour.
45 minutes drive from Saltzburg and 2 hours drive from Vienna, Schloss Kogl is in the town of St. Georgen im Attergau in the Salzkammergut Region of Austria.
