Picnics in the Vineyard

A magical place, a basket filled with delectable treats from the castle kitchens and cellars,…
if the skies smile down on you, this will be a day that leaves you with lasting memories.

Order the picnic menu that appeals to your taste buds more: picnic basket “Schloss Kapfenstein” or our “Fried-Chicken Picnic”.

Pick up your basket at the castle restaurant, look for an idyllic spot on the Kapfensteiner Kogel, sit down at one of the picnic tables out there and, in a beautiful natural setting, enjoy a selection of exquisite, hearty treats and a bottle of wine from our cellars.

Each basket also comes with:
tablecloth and serviettes, plates and cutlery, wine and water glasses, salt and pepper shakers, bottle opener and a small bottle of wine.
