Once upon a time...
...a rocky crest on the northwestern edge of a fertile valley which, thousand of years later, will be known as "Deutschlandsberg".
Due to its elevated and almost completely protected location, the mound was chosen already by Neolithic people as a place to settle. From then on, countless generations have found a home here. On this rock, in the Middle Ages, finally a small, but magnificent castle was built.

The first documentary mention of a lord of the castle, "Count Lonsperg", dates to 1153. This count administered the castle until 1263. From 970 until far into the 19th century, both the "Landsberg" fortress and the administrative dominion of the same name, which was attached to it, belonged to the Archdiocese of Salzburg. The castle was expanded and renovated numerous times during the period of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance. But as often happens, these periods of expansion were followed by decline, and from 1850 our small fortress fell into ruin. However, that was not the end of the story, because there were always people who took care of the castle and sought to restore it to its new greatness. Since 1932 the fortress has been owned by the municipality of Deutschlandsberg, and step by step it has been transformed into a significant exhibition center. 

So as you can see, our castle, like the one in the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, has been reawakened long time ago from its long slumber and opens its doors, as it has for centuries, to curious visitors.

The Castle Museum - Archeo Norico
In 8 permanent exhibitions with more than 5,000 objects on exhibit, you can experience livng history in its most beautiful form.

You can walk through the old parts of the castle directly on the renovaited trail of its builders or climb our viewing tower and enjoy a stunning view over the region as far as Slovenia.

With a little luck you can even look over our archeologists' shoulders and see the newest finds. 

The Castle Hotel
Dream like "Sleeping Beauty" in five-star suites 
The 21 rooms of our Castle Hotel are mostly arranged with period furniture and antiques that perfectly match the charm of the historic building. The absolute highlight is the three-storey "tower suite" with a beautifual panoramic view. Here you can feel like the lord of the castle or enjoy a wonderful wedding night just like Cinderella.
