Schlossgut Gundersdorf PRIVATE ESTATE

Idyllic farm life

A-9020 Klagenfurt, Gundersdorf 1

City holiday in the countryside

In the heart of Carinthia, in the village of Magdalensberg near Klagenfurt, we offer spacious rooms and 2 holiday appartements in our carefully restored 16th century castle manor.  

Quick in the city - holiday in the countryside

Klagenfurt am Wörthersee is easily reached for a shopping tour or a stroll through the historic old town with its southern flair and Europe's largest inland beach on the famous Wörther See is not far away either! Walk or cycle through the charming countryside of our village, the historical excavations on the Magdalensberg prove that even the Romans appreciated the mild climate south of the Alps and the beauty of the Carinthian surroundings. The medieval castle ruins of Zeiselburg are within easy walking distance.

 

Our guest rooms with their high ceilings offer space for up to 10 people. They are furnished with antique solid wood furniture, have old tiled stoves and original lamps, stucco work or parquet floors and fascinate with their unique charm. Each room has its own small bathroom and satellite TV; WLAN throughout the house. On request, we are also happy to provide our guests with baby cots. The metre-thick castle walls keep the rooms pleasantly cool in summer and ensure a restful sleep, while in winter a modern woodchip heating system brings comfort. A rich breakfast with homemade products and specialities from the region is served in the dining room with barrel vault and ensures the perfect start into the day.

 

Plenty of space

Around the house, the large garden offers plenty of space to play and unwind. Fragrant herbs, fruit and vegetables grow here - the basic ingredients for our handmade products, which are always available in the self-service farm shop.

Children are especially welcome here: whether jumping into the pool or playing in the garden - being loud is allowed here! Our young guests can expect a playground, many petting animals and a play corner.

History of the house and its residents:

Each room has its own story


Gundersdorf Castle was built in the 16th century. In the 17th century it was given its present horseshoe shape and provided with an arcade; the late Baroque façade dates from the late 18th century. In 1914 it was acquired by Johann Tauschitz and has been in our family since then. The barn, which is also horseshoe-shaped and approx. 300 years old, has the typical red brick windows of the region with Italian and Slavic influences.

The Carolinian Room

Named after the great-grandmother Caroline, who brought the furniture made of ash wood with mother-of-pearl ornaments to the farm as a dowry. The ash trees came from her parents' forest near St. Andrä in the Lavant Valley. Originally preserved in this room are a large old fireplace and the particularly beautiful panel parquet floor. During renovation work, a fresco came to light, which unfortunately could only be preserved to a very small extent.

The Kore Room

Great-great-uncle Karl, called "Kore", used to have a right of abode in this room.  He suffered a tragic fate at a young age when he and his horse were struck by lightning while riding home from the fields. It is said today that one of the worst storms of the last 100 years took place on that day and that riders and horses are said to haunt the house during thunderstorms.

The Auntie Mizzi Room

Great-great aunt Maria, called Mizzi, used to have the right of residence in this room in the east wing with a view of the garden. Aunt Mizzi was known not only for the vast quantities of delicious apple compote that she loved to cook and hide in the then unheated anteroom - but above all for her conditionally affectionate way of shooing the relatives around when she needed something. The big old fireplace is still original, the furniture is the oldest bedroom furniture in our house.

The Amaryllis Room

The Amaryllis Room is named after a work by the Carinthian painter Adolf Christl (1891-1974). The furniture is particularly ornate with carvings. In former times, a salon was housed here, which served to receive special guests and as a dining room during family celebrations. During renovation work, a walled-up but well-preserved window facing the arcade was discovered and uncovered. 

The Schlossgeist Apartment

The east wing of the house, where the maids' bedrooms, the apple store and a large pantry used to be, has been converted into a holiday flat. The place is said to have been haunted in the past! But maybe it's also because of the barrels of apple cider that were stored here and must have given people plenty of imagination and strange dreams. Our  fully equipped holiday flat for self-catering offers space for 4 people on 68m2. The flat is accessible from the garden via a separate entrance. The large living/bedroom was renovated in 2010 and furnished with solid wood furniture, made from old wood.

The Knechtstube Apartment

In former times, there were rooms and the parlour for the numerous maids and farmhands. It is located on the ground floor of the west wing, is partially handicapped accessible and has a separate entrance from the courtyard. This self-catering flat for 2 to a maximum of 4 people offers a large living room/bedroom, a small kitchen and a bathroom.
