History of the house and its residents:


Thomas Bernhard needs fresh air

The castle’s past at Pichlschloss is very diverse. After the 1st World War it served as a pulmonary sanatorium owing to the excellent air quality and ideal rural location. The timber outdoor lounge constructed at that time still exudes a protective, healing warmth today.

MeMemories ofrThomas Mann’s famous book, “The Magic Mountain”, are quickly awakened. Thomas Bernhard, who stayed at Pichlschloss several times, also enjoyed this atmosphere and the fresh air.

The residence of the Pichler family

The castle developed from a small nobleman’s residence, first mentioned in 1332 as Puhlern bei dem Newenmarcht. After several changes of ownership, the estate became a farmstead in the first half of the 16th century. With substantial building work, Bartlme Haslinger, who was knighted as a deserving official by King Ferdinand I in 1543, made Pichlschloss a property that befitted a Renaissance nobleman.

From 1625 to 1776 the Pichler family held the castle through succession and gave the castle its name.

Many of the building’s architectural details are still visible to this day as a characteristic, preserved residence of the lesser nobility in the 16th and 17th century. The richly ornamented Renaissance entrance indicates a significant phase of expansion under Bartlme Haslinger around 1569. The Renaissance and early baroque arches and flat ceilings illustrate the hierarchical structure of an early modern seat of nobility.

For three generations (since 1926) the owner family has run it as a small and very personally managed hotel.
