Fairytales do exist—at least in Lower Austria. Feast your eyes on the glorious castle Silbererschlössl, now exclusively on the market with Engel & Völkers Vienna. Silbererschlössl meets all criteria when it comes to the unnegotiable elements one would expect in a dream castle. A rich history? Check. Timeless architectural features? Check. Lancets, turrets and stained glass? Check, check and check.
Beyond these priceless features, however, Silbererschlössl is infinitely more special for one thing: its location. Built approximately 900 meters above sea level, the structure is nestled in the mountainous Semmering Pass. This idyllic region located an hour from Vienna has been a sought-after destination for the Austrian elite dating back to the 19th century. To name one such celebrity, Emperor Charles I of Austria, the last reigning monarch of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was a frequent visitor of the region. Today, Semmering continues to attract visitors from around the world for its stunning natural beauty, resorts and boundless recreational activities.
Even with its nine bedrooms and grand banquet hall, Silbererschlössl’s unobstructed mountain views are what make this 19th-century castle truly extraordinary. In the end, it really is all about location, location, location.
