Checking in: Schloss Mittersill Austria
Schloss Mittersill Austria
Schloss Mittersill is a true castle located in Austria. Its history goes way back to 1150 when the castle was built. Over the years, it attracted numerous royalty, as well as some big names like Coco Chanel, Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Gina Lollobrigida, Aristoteles Onassis… The sports and shooting club based in the castle, founded by Baron Hubert von Pantz, was one of the world’s most elite society clubs. In 2009 the castle was fully renovated, but it kept its tradition and old charm that is now combined with modern pieces.
The castle is located above the village of Mittersill with amazing views of the mountains. Its location is perfect to plan a day trip to glamorous Kitzbühel. It is also ideal starting point for exploring the region as a whole. You can visit the Großglockner alpine road, the village of Kaprun or the biggest waterfalls in Europe called the Krimml Waterfalls.
Situated with a fascinating view over Mittersill the 4-star superior hotel Schloss Mittersill also offers a breathtaking panoramic view over the mountains of the Nationalpark Hohe Tauern in Salzburg. It is near the world famous villages Kitzbühel and Zell Am See, as well as close to the TOP-skiing areas in Salzburg and Tirol. The hotel is renovated but still contains the charm and the character of the past. It is stylish, elegant and historic… all at the same time.
Upon our arrival, we were welcomed by the hosts Stephanie, who also took us on tour of the castle. Our check in process was sweetened by a glass of Prosecco and then we were accompanied to our suite. Our suite was Gina Lollobrigida Suite with breathtaking views of the town.
The hotel has also a beautiful spa (with amazing views), heated outdoor pool with comfortable loungers, wonderful restaurant and the wifi is free throughout the hotel.
Each of the castle rooms has its own character and has been designed with a great deal of attention to detail. The 43 rooms are designed in either a historical or contemporary fashion. The suites are named after aristocratic, famous personalities and Hollywood stars, who have stayed in the castle over the course of the centuries. Henry Ford II., Gina Lollobrigida, Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and many others are repeatedly entered in the visitor book in Mittersill Castle. The suites honor the memory of their famous namesakes, bringing their spirit into a new era.
Our suite was spectacular, spacious and comfortable with very nice furniture and modern bathroom. Cozy bed, lovely seating area, amazing free standing bathtub, and enormous terrace are definitely the highlights of the suite.
Schloss Mittersill has a great restaurant where guests are indulged with regional & international specialties, using predominantly local products.
Breakfast at Schloss Mittersill was amazing. You could choose what your heart desire… fruit, muesli, jam, waffles, meat, salami, cheese, eggs, omelets, bread, pastries and fresh juice. Everything was delicious and simply wonderful!
Dinner at the restaurant was always delicious, with multiple courses and many options to choose from. Every evening we were served with a gourmet dinner and our server helped us with choosing the perfect wine that goes along.
A heated outdoor pool, which is integrated into the garden area, saunas and relaxation rooms which enjoy dreamy views to the surrounding mountains, promise special castle moments. Pampering facial and cosmetic treatments, massages and body treatments with top-quality products from the SOTHYS Paris cosmetics range can be booked as an option.

Either way, you will definitely enjoy your stay, which will be remembered forever because of the lovely and friendly staff members.
