Nestled in the unspoiled natural landscape of the Donau-Auen National Park stands the ancient royal hunting lodge of Eckartsau in the midst of a 27 hectare landscaped garden. Because of its location in the game-rich Danube valley, the castle has always been used as a hunting lodge. Under the Habsburgs, the castle was the scene of grand dinners and glittering balls. Later it became the scene of the demise of the monarchy. It was here in 1918 under Emperor Karl I that the imperial family spent its last Christmas and its last days on Austrian soil. Today, the castle is open to visitors for sightseeing and perfect for dipping into history. But also for celebrations in a festive, historic setting. A visit to Schloss Eckartsau is an experience. Take a stroll in the park and visit the private rooms of the last Austrian imperial couple. Information is available in the shop or the information desk of the National Park Donau-Auen.
