Be a knight for a weekend

A family trip back to the Middle Ages at Mauterndorf Castle

The imposing defense tower takes both individual visitors and families back to a bygone age. The family-friendly castle of Mauterndorf will amaze the whole family and reveal what life was like in the toll station castle centuries ago. The kids can let off steam and burn off energy on the adventure playground. There are special holiday offers and guided tours of the castle for children in which professionals bring the past back to life for up to two hours. Please note: Access around the castle is limited for children with strollers.

Children’s audio guide

Have fun while you learn

Children have their own way of learning and exploring, so at Mauterndorf Castle we have developed special audio guides fully tailored to their needs. A tour of the castle therefore becomes an exciting trip back to the Middle Ages: Following in Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach’s footsteps, the children meet the residents of the castle. In the clothing room they slip into the clothes of knights and damsels and take part in the preparations for a great feast. On their journey around the castle the children ultimately even get to meet the Archbishop in person. 

We currently have children’s audio guides in German, English, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Czech, Hungarian and Russian. Audio guides are handed out at the ticket window.

Medieval playground for little bundles of energy

Kids love it!

The adventure playground is a great opportunity for children to let off steam. Here the young ones capture a real “castle within the castle”, since the playground is integrated in the medieval walls and courtyards of the castle. Your kids’ eyes will light up as soon as they see it – and yours will, too!
