Schloss Hof

Teaserbild Schloss Hof

Welcome to the joie de vivre of the baroque world! Only an hour's drive from Vienna in the eastern “Marchfeld” you will find Schloss Hof. This palace is a Gesamtkunstwerk and covers more than 120 acres of land. The former Imperial country residence was one of the most glorious palaces in the Habsburg lands. In 1726 it was acquired by the legendary general Prince Eugene of Savoy who had it completely redesigned so that it later became the largest country palace estate under the reign of the Empress Maria Theresia. Imperial glory and rural idyll come together as a unique combination of an aristocratic palace, a magnificent terraced garden and a tranquil estate farm. Even in Eugene's time Schloss Hof was widely known as a place of splendid occasions, and today we continue this tradition of opulent entertainment with numerous festivities and events.
