Living in the castle ensemble
The wonderful Bach Castle is located in a magical place in the heart of Carinthia. Interesting talks and events with international participation take place at this beautiful location every year.
Right next to the inhabited castle, the lord of the manor has created fantastic guest accommodation in the historic annex building. The building, which has 4 en-suite bedrooms, offers guests a very large living/dining area with a kitchen, fireplace and adjacent patio. The historic elements of the walls are skilfully combined with modern art and interior design.
The view over the castle gardens and towards Lake Urban offers wonderful moments for heart and soul: a magical location, an energiser, a house full of joy, comfort and relaxation.
We prefer to hire out our guesthouse from 1st April to 30th October. In winter we have to charge a supplement for heating.

History of the house and its residents:
The castle at Lake Urban
The castle in its present form was constructed in the 16th century. The previous building, a medieval ministerialis tower, was first mentioned in 1192 as the seat of a ministerialis (Wigant de Bach) and in 1433 as “turm ze Pach” owned by the Mordax family. After 1569 it was owned by Hannibal Egkh von Hungersbach. In 1596 Christoph Baron of Egkh had the old castle converted into the present Renaissance castle. The arcade between the castle and the farm buildings was added in 1609 under Carl Baron of Egkh. As a Protestant, the latter had to leave the country in 1614. The manor had various subsequent owners. In 1739, a castle chapel was consecrated, which fell victim to a fire together with the farm buildings in 1890. Interior restoration took place between 1997 and 1999. The walled arcades of the eastern loggia were opened up at this time and frescos were uncovered on the second floor.
The listed building is privately owned.
