Get married at Kapfenstein Castle!
Kapfenstein Castle is located in the middle of the Styrian thermal spa region, in the southeast of Styria, not far from the Hungarian and Slovenian borders. A place with history. The castle is perched on an extinguished volcanic cone, which was first mentioned in a document in 1065. Since 1898, Kapfenstein Castle has been owned by the Winkler-Hermaden family. The word Kapfenstein comes from the Middle High German “Vom Stein gaffen”, peek into the distance… When you arrive at Kapfenstein, this is also the incomparable welcome greeting. The view sweeps from Hungary to the east, over Slovenia in the south, to the West Styrian hills and to the Carinthian Karawanken in the west.
